On Friday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had tested positive for the coronavirus and was self-isolating at his Downing Street residence. However, he said that he would still lead the government’s response to the accelerating outbreak.
Johnson, 55, experienced mild symptoms on Thursday – a day after he answered at the prime minister’s weekly question-and-answer session in parliament’s House of Commons chamber.
A few days back, Prince Charles, the 71-year-old heir to the British throne, tested positive for coronavirus this week and has mild symptoms. He is in good health and self-isolating in Scotland.
On Saturday, the number of COVID-19 deaths in Britain topped 1,000 after a record 260 people died in the previous 24 hours. Government figures showed 1,019 people had died on Friday, while the number of confirmed cases stood at 17,089 on Saturday morning, up 17.5% on a day earlier.
