PM admitted to hospital for tests
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was admitted to hospital for tests on Sunday, about 10 days after he tested positive for the new coronavirus.
A spokesperson at the prime minister’s office said the move was a “precautionary step” as the prime minister continues to have persistent symptoms of the coronavirus.
Johnson said in a video message posted on Twitter on March 27 that he had tested positive for the virus. He had since led the country’s operations to control the coronavirus outbreak, while in isolation at home.
