The Prime Minister of United Kingdom (UK) Boris Johnson on Friday announced that he has developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus. Johnson used the mirco-blogging platform Twitter to announce the same.

He, however, clarified that he will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference.

“Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus. I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus. Together we will beat this. #StayHomeSaveLives,” Boris Johnson tweeted.

Coronavirus has infected over 5 lakh globally and killed over 20,000.

Soon after the news of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson testing positive for Covid-19 surfaced on Friday, PM Narendra Modi tweeted wishing his UK counterpart good health.

“Dear PM @BorisJohnson, you’re a fighter and you will overcome this challenge as well. Prayers for your good health and best wishes in ensuring a healthy UK,” PM Modi said retweeting Boris Johnson’s announcement.
