Boris Johnson is self-isolating in Downing Street after coming into contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus.
The Prime Minister, who was admitted to intensive care when he battled Covid-19 earlier this year, is feeling well and does not have any symptoms, a spokesman said on Sunday night.
“The Prime Minister will follow the rules and is self-isolating. “He will carry on working from Downing Street, including on leading the Government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The PM is well and does not have any symptoms of Covid-19.”
The 56-year-old was notified by NHS Test and Trace that he is required to self-isolate as a result of having contact with someone diagnosed with the disease. The No10 spokesman said Mr Johnson “will follow the rules” after receiving the alert, and will continue working from Downing Street while he is in quarantine.
