BORIS Johnson is unlikely to appear in public for an entire week after a close family member tested positive for covid.
The Prime Minister’s spokesman informed him of his isolation yesterday but declined to say which members of his family have fallen ill.
A spokesman for Mr Johnson said: “The Prime Minister is following guidance to do daily tests and limit contact with others. The positive result is on Wednesday, so the Prime Minister will continue this guidance until and including Tuesday of next week.
“Suitable for guidance, he is reducing contact. He will work from number 10, do daily tests and Limit contact with others both outside number 10 and actually inside number 10, limit contact with others in the building and conduct meetings online. ”
When asked if this means Johnson won’t be discovered next week, the spokesman said: “In line with guidance, that is, limit close contact as much as possible and homemade As much as possible, you wouldn’t expect the prime minister to go beyond that guideline. But that doesn’t necessarily prevent him from doing any media interviews. ”
