In a tweet, Johnson said that that over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus. I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government's response via video-conference as we fight this virus.

I have developed mild symptoms, that's a temperature and a persistent cough, Johsnson said. On the advise of the chief medical officer, I have taken a test and it has come out positive. I am working from home and self-isolating. That is 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, the UK PM also said.
