British PM Boris Johnson admitted to hospital for tests over ‘persistent’ coronavirus symptoms

By: CNBC, Apr 5 2020:

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been admitted to the hospital for tests 10 days after contracting the coronavirus.

A Downing Street spokesperson said it’s a “precautionary step” since the prime minister continues to have persistent symptoms of the virus.

“The Prime Minister thanks NHS staff for all of their incredible hard work and urges the public to continue to follow the Government’s advice to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives,” the spokesperson said.

Johnson, 55, is the first major governmental leader known to have contracted the disease and had been self-isolating at home.

He remains in charge of the government and is in contact with ministerial colleagues and officials.

The news of Johnson’s hospitalization followed a rare television address to the nation by Queen Elizabeth, who urged citizens to confront the pandemic with resolve and unity.

“I am speaking to you at what I know is an increasingly challenging time,” the queen said in a taped broadcast from Windsor Castle. “A time of disruption in the life of our country: a disruption that has brought grief to some, financial difficulties to many, and enormous changes to the daily lives of us all.”

The virus has infected more than 40,000 people in Britain, including the Queen’s eldest son and heir to the British Throne, Prince Charles.
