UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was fine after coming into contact with someone with COVID-19 and that he would push the government forward through Zoom while self-isolating on Downing Street.
Johnson said Sunday he was instructed by the NHS Test and Trace program to self-isolate for two weeks. Johnson smiled and wore an open shirt sweater and said in a video posted on Twitter that he was “as fit as a butcher dog.”
Hi folks, I was directed by our NHS Test & Trace program to self-isolate for two weeks after coming into contact with someone who has been in contact with Covid-19.

“I’m full of antibodies,” said Johnson. “Of course, there is a lot more to be said about zoom and other electronic communication tools.”
Ministers said Boris Johnson was fine.
“He’s fine, he’s absolutely full of beans,” Health Secretary Matt Hancock told Sky News. “He will, I have no doubt, move things forward for Zoom this week.”
When Johnson got COVID-19 in March, he tried to process the illness “in denial” – but wore an oxygen mask in an intensive care unit and ended up being out of service for almost a month.
He later said he fought for his life as the state prepared for the unthinkable: the possible death of a prime minister in office.
