On December 12, Conservative Party’s Boris Johnson secured a landslide victory in the UK election, much in part to his support for Brexit, and became Britain’s newest Prime Minister.
Today, the very popular, conservative prime minister dropped a bombshell, when he revealed on Twitter that he’s been diagnosed with coronavirus.
He explains: “Hi, folks. I want to bring you up to speed with something that’s happened today, which is that I’ve developed mild symptoms of the coronavirus” he explained in a positive tone. He explained that his symptoms are indeed mild, saying he has a “temperature and a persistent cough.” Johnson explained that “on the advice of the chief medical officer” he took a coronavirus test that came back “positive,” explaining that he’s self-isolated and will be working from home, adding that “it’s entirely the right thing to do.”
Johnson assured everyone that “thanks to the wizardry of modern technology,” he will be able to communicate with his team to fight the coronavirus. The UK Prime Minister thanked all of the health care workers and volunteers who are taking on a “great national effort” to help their nation through the coronavirus epidemic. He also reminded everyone that the only way they’re going to be the spread of coronavirus is to “stay at home.”
Boris Johnson’s Health minister Matt Hancock has also been diagnosed with coronavirus.
Hancock was seen running from Johnson’s home at 1 Downing Street in London this morning:

President Trump also has a strong relationship with the conservative firebrand Boris Johnson but has not yet tweeted a message, as he’s currently embroiled in a battle with libertarian-leaning Republican Rep. Tom Massie, who’s refusing to support the coronavirus aid bill Americans so desperately need.
