U.K.’s Johnson in Hospital With Persistent Coronavirus Symptoms
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was taken into hospital for tests on Sunday as a precaution, after struggling to recover from the coronavirus infection he contracted 10 days ago.
Johnson, 55, felt unwell March 26 and took a test, which confirmed he had the illness. The following day he announced he was in isolation, and has been unable to shake off the symptoms — including a high temperature.
“On the advice of his doctor, the prime minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests,” a spokesperson for Johnson’s office said on Sunday. “This is a precautionary step, as the prime minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus.”
