Boris Johnson has tonight been taken to hospital after struggling to shake off persistent coronavirus symptoms.
Downing Street stressed that the Prime Minister will undergo tests merely as a precaution, on the advice of his doctor. His admittance to an undisclosed London hospital comes 10 days after he tested positive for the infection and began self-isolating.
In a Twitter video on Friday, an exhausted-looking Mr. Johnson revealed he was still suffering from a high temperature.
But he has continued to spearhead the government’s response to the health crisis. News of Mr. Johnson’s hospitalization came after the Queen’s address to the nation, in which she told Britons to steel themselves for challenging weeks ahead.
