UK (SK) — The minister, Boris Johnson, has become immune to the disease after a member of parliament announced last week he tested positive for the coronavirus. On Sunday, British parliament member Lee Anderson posted a statement that both he and his wife tested positive for COVID on Sunday. Anderson and Johnson were at a meeting on Thursday, The Guardian reported. A Number 10 spokesperson said Johnson “does not have any symptoms” and is self-isolating, according to a statement reported by the BBC.
Anderson posted a photo on Facebook on Thursday. Johnson stood side by side, both unmasked. Anderson said in the Facebook post he had breakfast with Johnson at Number 10. Anderson was tested Saturday and received results on Sunday, he said.
Johnson tested positive for the coronavirus in March. He spent three days in intensive care after contracting the virus. After becoming very ill, he was put on oxygen. At the end of October, Johnson announced a national shutdown in the wake of rising cases of coronavirus.
Some ministers say the plan will be in place until 2021. The UK has over 1.3 million confirmed cases of coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University.
Today I was notified by NHS Test and Trace that I must self-isolate as I have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.— Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson) November 15, 2020
I have no symptoms, but am following the rules and will be working from No10 as I continue to lead the government’s pandemic response.
