British Prime Minister Boris Johnson Hospitalized After Failing To Shake Coronavirus

President Donald Trump led many world leaders who have been sending their messages to Johnson wishing him quick recovery as he battles with COVID-19.

Several other members of Johnson's government have also tested positive for the virus, including Health Secretary Matt Hancock and junior Health Minister Nadine Dorries.

Downing St. said Sunday the hospitalization is a "precautionary step" and he remains in charge of the government.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was diagnosed with the coronavirus last month, has been admitted to the hospital for testing on the advice of his doctor, his office said Sunday.

But government sources said Johnson was still in charge.

His pregnant partner, Carrie Symonds, said she has been ill with symptoms for a week but was now recovering.

Symonds, who became engaged to Johnson a year ago, said she is anxious about having the CCP virus while pregnant.

"He's very much got his hand on the tiller", he told Sky News television but said Johnson was being careful to follow government advice on self-isolation.

Britain now has 47,806 confirmed hospital cases and 4,934 deaths. Johnson had informed his social media followers that he had mild symptoms before he tested positive.

The queen is now in self-isolation at Windsor Castle with her husband Prince Philip and it is only the fourth time she has given such an address during her 68-year reign. We will succeed - and that success will belong to every one of us.

"In a way it shows this virus affects different people differently".

"I've spent the past week in bed with the main symptoms of coronavirus".

Queen Elizabeth offered a message of reassurance Sunday evening, calling on British people to act with "self-discipline" and "good-humoured resolve" to overcome the coronavirus outbreak.

People have been told only to leave their homes to shop for essential items and medicine, and to exercise. He said that this behaviour could not go on.

Within an hour of the Johnson announcement, Scotland's chief medical officer Catherine Calderwood resigned after she was photographed by The Scottish Sun visiting her holiday home on the east coast of the country over the weekend.
