Prime Minister Boris Johnson has tested positive for coronavirus and is self-isolating in Downing Street.

He said he had experienced mild symptoms over the past 24 hours, including a temperature and cough, but would continue to lead the government.

England’s Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he had also tested positive while England’s Chief Medical Officer, Prof Chris Whitty, has shown symptoms.

Another 181 people died with the virus in the past day, figures showed.

It takes the total number of UK deaths to 759, with 14,543 confirmed cases.

The daily coronavirus news conference was led by Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove, alongside deputy chief medical officer Dr Jenny Harries and NHS England chief executive Sir Simon Stevens.

It follows mounting criticism from NHS staff over a lack of testing – currently, only seriously-ill patients in hospital are being tested.

Testing will be carried out on staff showing possible symptoms of the virus or staff who live with people who have symptoms – not for all frontline workers as a matter of course.

“This will be antigen testing – testing whether people currently have the disease – so that our health and social care workers can have security in the knowledge that they are safe to return to work if their test is negative,” Mr Gove said.

The British Medical Association, which represents doctors, said the announcement was “long overdue” and the lack of testing so far had been “incredibly frustrating”.



“For every healthy member of staff at home self-isolating needlessly when they do not have the virus, the NHS is short of someone who could be providing vital care to patients on the frontline,” BMA chairman Dr Chaand Nagpaul said.
