UK Prime Minister tested positive

Post by crewmeal »

News reports that Boris has contracted the virus. Does this means Downing Street will be closed for business?

You wish.

As long as Dominic Cummings is ok, you won’t notice any difference.

The Prime Minister is still working, just isolating himself at the flat at No 11 Downing St.

Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Heath and Social Care, has also tested positive for Corona Virus and is self isolating.

Given the number of meetings they have been holding, and the number of people they were still meeting during the last 14 days, I would expect more high profile names to be added to that list before very long.

He doesn't look at all well (unless the DM have photoshopped him to look poorly)

I saw a news clip yesterday which included a video call with Boris Johnson and I thought then how poorly he looked. His breathing also sounded much more laboured than a few days ago.

I know there are some that are gloating that he has the Covid-19 virus, but seeing him, and others who have it or are recovering from it, makes me realise how awful the symptoms of it are. I don't think any of us can afford to be too complacent about it.
