United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been taken to hospital for tests, 10 days after he tested positive for COVID-19.
Johnson had announced that he had tested positive and was showing mild symptoms of the novel coronavirus on March 27. At the time he had said that he was self-isolating at 10 Downing Street for 7 days.
He was expected to come out of isolation on Friday but he reportedly still has a high temperature.
"On the advice of his doctor, the Prime Minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests,” said a Downing Street statement on Sunday. "This is a precautionary step, as the Prime Minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus 10 days after testing positive for the virus."
British Health Secretary Matt Hancock, who also tested positive, has recovered and returned to work on Friday.
