British Prime Minister Johnson isolates himself again

In early April this year, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had been hospitalized for treatment of a new coronavirus infection. On November 15, a Downing Street spokesman said Johnson was again under self-quarantine due to the neo-coronavirus.

The spokesman said that Prime Minister Johnson is under self-imposed quarantine because he has had contact with a person who has been diagnosed with the new coronavirus. Johnson is currently “feeling well and is not experiencing any symptoms of neo-coronavirus infection” and “will continue to work from his Downing Street home to develop policies to deal with a neo-coronavirus pandemic”.

The BBC further reported that Johnson had been in contact with a confirmed infected person, Lee Anderson, MP for Ashfield, and that the two had been in contact for about 35 minutes. Johnson has since been contacted by the UK’s NHS Detection and Tracing Agency, which indicated to Johnson that he needed to self-quarantine himself due to his contact with the confirmed person. The confirmed infection of the Member of Parliament Lee Anderson also said on Facebook, is self-quarantine, and said he “lost the sense of taste last Friday, his wife also had a severe headache symptoms. Lee Anderson said he “no cough, fever symptoms, feel good, and his wife on Saturday to do the test, Sunday morning got the results, both husband and wife are positive confirmed”.

AFP London later reported in detail that Johnson met with “a small group of MPs”, including Lee Anderson, in his Downing Street office early this past Thursday morning. The length of Johnson’s quarantine period has not been disclosed, but the British health care system has said that “in his case, the quarantine is mainly in accordance with the current 14 days”.

This spring, Johnson was admitted to the hospital after being struck by the new coronavirus and spent three days in the intensive care unit for treatment. After being discharged from the hospital, he thanked the medical staff for “saving his life,” and after recovery encouraged the public to lose weight to maintain good health and avoid the syndrome caused by the new crown.
