UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he will continue to lead the nation from home after testing positive for Covid-19.

„I’ve developed mild symptoms of the coronavirus, that’s a temperature and a persistent cough,“ Mr Johnson said in a video posted on his Twitter account.

„On the advice of the chief medical officer, I have taken a test and that has come out positive.

„I’m working from home and self-isolating. That’s entirely the right thing to do.

„I can continue, thanks to the wizardry of technology, to communicate with my top team and lead the national fightback against the virus.“
