UK PM Johnson staying in coronavirus isolation with mild symptoms

Britain's PM Johnson applauds in support of NHS outside 11 Downing, London

LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was remaining in isolation on Friday as he still had mild symptoms of the coronavirus including a high temperature seven days after he tested positive for the virus.

“Although I’m feeling better and I’ve done my seven days of isolation, alas I still have one of the symptoms, a minor symptom, I still have a temperature so in accordance with government advice I must continue my self isolation until that symptom itself goes,” Johnson said in a video message.

Johnson announced a week ago that he had tested positive and would be isolating in Downing Street.
