British Prime Minister Boris Johnson hospitalised with persistent coronavirus symptoms on Monday, 10 days after testing positive for the virus,

According to Downing Street, he is still in charge of the government.

“The prime minister is still at the hospital,” a British government source said. “He spent the night in the hospital.”

PM Johnson, who had been isolating in Downing Street after testing positive last month, was taken to hospital on Sunday night because he still had a high temperature and his doctors felt he needed additional tests.

“On the advice of his doctor, the prime minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests,” PM’s Downing Street office said in a statement on Sunday.

“This is a precautionary step, as the prime minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus ten days after testing positive for the virus,” the statement added.
