British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was in hospital in London on Monday suffering persistent coronavirus symptoms 10 days after testing positive for the virus. ‘On the advice of his doctor, he went into hospital yesterday for a series of routine tests. He spent the night in hospital, and of course we all wish him well and hope that as a result of those tests he will be able to come back to Downing Street as soon as possible. In his absence Dominic Raab will lead the meeting this morning on the coronavirus with a number of other cabinet colleagues, and we’re working as a team in the cabinet and across government, and the Prime Minister’s advisors of course remain in Number 10 in order to help him make decisions and to be as informed as possible about events’, housing minister Robert Jenrick said on April 6.
