‘Be in No Doubt That I Can Continue,’ Boris Johnson Says
In a video message to the British people, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that he tested positive for the novel coronavirus. He also took the message as an opportunity to urge his constituents to practice social distancing.
I’ve developed mild symptoms of the coronavirus, that’s to say a temperature and a persistent cough. And on the advice of the chief medical officer, I’ve taken a test that has come out positive, so I am working from home. I’m self isolating and that’s entirely the right thing to do. But be in no doubt that I can continue, thanks to the wisdom of modern technology, to communicate with all my top team to lead the national fight back against coronavirus. I want to thank everybody who’s working to keep our country going through this epidemic, and we will get through it, and the way we’re going to get through it is, of course, by applying the measures that you’ll have heard so much about. And the more effectively we all comply with those measures, the faster our country will come through this epidemic, and the faster we’ll bounce back. So thank you to everybody who’s doing what I’m doing: Working from home to stop the spread of the virus from household to household. That’s the way we’re going to win. We’re going to beat it, and we’re going to beat it together.
