RT reports (source):

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has tested positive for Covid-19 infection, experiencing mild symptoms. He will self-isolate in Downing Street but will remain in charge of the government.

“Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus,” Johnson said. “I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus.”

It was not immediately clear when the prime minister was tested but various members of his staff had been working elsewhere when the news first emerged that he had tested positive.

Johnson, 55, reportedly began experiencing mild symptoms on Thursday and was tested for coronavirus on the personal advice of England’s Chief Medical Officer, Chris Whitty.

Reports in UK media indicate that finance minister Rishi Sunak and health secretary Matt Hancock will have to enter self-isolation because they spent time with Johnson while he was infectious.

For the time being, Johnson will continue to carry out his duties, but Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Dominc Raab may be asked to step in should the prime minister’s condition worsen.

The latest figures show that the UK has over 11,800 confirmed cases of coronavirus infection which has, so far, resulted in the deaths of 578 people.

Assad must go…Boris Johnson

That’s gold, I wonder if he considered that when he came up with the herd immunity strategy. Unfortunately I predict he’ll pull through, retardation isn’t one of the complicating conditions that cause death as I understand.

Boris did look a bit pasty in his recent interviews. Karma’s a bitch.

Boris shouldn’t worry, he will be fine. He has lots of minions to do his bidding. He won’t lose any salary either. Bankruptcy is for the little guys after all.

The day I believe anything a politician says is the day of my first sign of mental degradation. I said it first, like all the psychopaths of his kind he will miraculously survive it.

Leaders that claim they’ve been infected are really hiding from the coming shitstorm.
