Boris Johnson stays in self-isolation as COVID-19 symptoms persist

LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson remains in self-isolation as he continues to suffer from COVID-19 symptoms.

In a short video posted on Twitter, Johnson said he is feeling better after seven days in self-isolation. However, he added he still has a temperature and so will remain in self-isolation until it has gone.

“In my own case, although Im feeling better and Ive done my seven days of isolation, alas I still have one of the symptoms, a minor symptom, I still have a temperature,” Johnson said. “And so in accordance with government advice I must continue my self-isolation until that symptom itself goes.”

The prime minister urged people to stick with the social distancing rules as the weather becomes milder.
