KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, after testing positive for coronavirus, says he has a temperature and persistent cough.

As Johnson was confirmed on Friday to have contracted the virus, Downing Street said that he had started experiencing mild symptoms of CVID-18 on Thursday.

In a video on his Twitter page, Johnson said he would continue to lead the government's response via video-conference “as we fight this virus”.

The premier said: "I am working from home and self-isolating and that's entirely the right thing to do. But, be in no doubt that I can continue...”

Healthinfo-icon Secretary Matt Hancock has also tested positive for COVID-19. He said he would be self-isolating for the next week.

The Prince of Wales is also suffering from “mild symptoms” of coronavirus.
