UK PM, after shaking hands with corona patients, tests positive; Health Minister Hancock too

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has tested positive for coronavirus. So also Health Minister Hancock. Wishing early recovery, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote to Johnson: "You’re a fighter and you will overcome this challenge as well." The corona crisis has gone out of control in the UK with not enough equipments to fight the contagion.

LONDON, Mar 27: Like many world leaders and celebs earlier, now British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his Health Minister Matt Hancock too have tested positive for coronavirus infection. They are currently in self-isolation and working from home. Even Queen Elizabeth was forced to shift from the palace following covid infection of a palace employee. The situation is grim.

"Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus. I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the Government’s response via video- conference as we fight this virus. Together we will beat this," Boris Johnson tweeted.

He had said earlier he was shaking hands with coronavirus patients (at a hospital on March 3) and that the virus would not stop him from greeting them.

Matt Hancock tweeted: “Following medical advice, I was advised to test for coronavirus. I’ve tested positive...Thankfully my symptoms are mild and I’m working from home & self-isolating. Vital we follow the advice to protect our NHS & save lives.”

"Dear Boris Johnson, you are a fighter," Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted after the UK Prime Minister tested positive for coronavirus. "Prayers for your good health and best wishes in ensuring a healthy UK," Modi told Boris Johnson

Dear PM @BorisJohnson, You’re a fighter and you will overcome this challenge as well. Prayers for your good heal… — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi)

Johnson, 55, experienced mild symptoms on Thursday."The prime minister was tested for coronavirus on the personal advice of England's Chief Medical Officer, Professor Chris Whitty," a report quoted a spokesman for the Prime Minister's office as saying.

"I want to thank all of our brilliant public servants, not only in the NHS, but also in the Police, Armed Forces, local government, social care and elsewhere - you have shown extraordinary courage in facing this national emergency. Our country owes you a huge debt of gratitude," Johnson said.

Meals will be kept outside Johnson's room in Downing Street. The doors between Rooms No 10 and 11 have neen closed.

"Thank you so much for all the kind messages since I announced I have Coronavirus. Thankfully for me it is mild but I’m just so glad the NHS is there in case it were worse," Matt Hancock wrote in reply to reactions from various quarters.

As some Ministers were in the room with Johnson this week, there are doubts more Ministers may have contracted covid, especially as they have not been observing social distancing.
