Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed to be positive at Covid-19 on Friday March 27. “He announced it this morning in a video posted on Twitter. According to him, he has only mild symptoms: fever, persistent cough. But it is indeed positive. He was therefore unable to hold his daily press conference. And it wasn’t the Minister of Health, Matt Hancock, who held it because he too tested positive“, explains journalist Arnaud Comte in duplex from London (United Kingdom).
The chief medical officer, adviser to the government, is also in quarantine with a suspicion of Covid-19. “This is how the British are going to try to fight the virus, to improve the situation, when there is a severe shortage of beds and hospitals are not ready. This is why, whether in London, or in the north of the country, in Birmingham or Manchester, field hospitals are being set up to try to increase the number of beds available to care for those in need“, concludes the journalist.
