Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, has been hospitalized after contracting the Coronavirus.
Johnson was admitted to a hospital on Sunday after suffering from coronavirus symptoms 10 days after testing positive, his office announced Sunday.
A spokesperson said: “On the advice of his doctor, the prime minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests. This is a precautionary step, as the prime minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus 10 days after testing positive for the virus. The prime minister thanks [National Health Service] staff for all of their incredible hard work and urges the public to continue to follow the government’s advice to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.”
Johnson, 55, had been quarantined in his home since being diagnosed with COVID-19 on March 26, Fox News reported.
In a video message posted to his Twitter account March 27, he explained he had developed “mild symptoms” over the last 24 hours — “a temperature and a persistent cough.”
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.

We wish him the best and pray for a quick recovery.
