British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday after experiencing “mild symptoms. 

"Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus," Johnson wrote on his twitter handle on Friday morning. 

"I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus. Together we will beat this. #StayHomeSaveLives, " he added. 

In a statement, a Downing Street spokesman said the 55-year-old experienced mild symptoms on Thursday - a day after he answered at the prime minister's weekly question-and-answer session in the chamber of the House of Commons.

“The test was carried out in No 10 by NHS staff and the result of the test was positive,” the spokesman said. “In keeping with the guidance, the Prime Minister is self-isolating in Downing Street.”
 
“He is continuing to lead the government’s response to coronavirus.”
