The United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson who earlier tested positive for the coronavirus has been admitted to hospital for further tests.

Sources revealed the UK Prime minister spent a night at a hospital after he suffered persistent coronavirus symptoms just 10 days after he tested positive. The sources also confirmed that the prime minister is still in charge of the government.

“The PM is still at the hospital. He spent the night in hospital,” said a British government said.

The PM has been in isolation at the Downing Street but was later advised by his personal doctor to go for further tests when his conditions seemed to worsen.

“On the advice of his doctor, the prime minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests,” Boris Johnson’s office announced on Sunday, March 5, 2020.

“This is a precautionary step, as the prime minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus ten days after testing positive for the virus.”

Boris Johnson was the first leader of a major power to announce that he had tested positive. He took a precautionary step to isolate himself in an apartment at Downing Street.
