Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a tweet he posted today.
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 pic.twitter.com/9Te6aFP0Ri
