British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he has tested positive for the coronavirus (koronavirus, in Finnish).
Johnson said in a tweet that he has “developed mild symptoms” and is self-isolating.
"On the advice of the chief medical officer, I have taken a test and that has come out positive."
"I'm working from home and self-isolating. That's entirely the right thing to do."
"I can continue, thanks to the wizardry of technology, to communicate with my top team and lead the national fightback against the virus."
Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus.— Boris Johnson #StayHomeSaveLives (@BorisJohnson) March 27, 2020
I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus.
