London, United Kingdom:
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Monday he was in “good health” and had no symptoms despite self-isolating after someone he was in contact with tested positive for coronavirus.
“It doesn’t matter that I am fit as a butcher dog, that I feel great … that I had the disease and am full of antibodies,” he said in a video posted on Twitter.
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.

“We need to stop the spread of the disease and one way we can do it now is to self-isolate for 14 days if we are contacted by Test and Trace,” he added, saying he would check the virus response Landes run his home on Downing Street.
Johnson spent three days in intensive care with coronavirus in April. This time, Johnson said he had no symptoms and Health Secretary Matt Hancock said Monday he sounded “full of beans”.
The prime minister was informed to self-isolate after being contacted by the country’s Test and Trace program.
The announcement came after Johnson met a group of MPs on Downing Street Thursday, including one who later developed symptoms of Covid-19 and has now tested positive.
The UK leader said his coronavirus case was seriously made worse by being overweight, but he has since lost 12 pounds.
“I’m going to continue this diet because you have to look for the hero in you in the hope that this person will be a lot leaner,” he joked last month.
The UK was the hardest hit country in Europe, recording over 50,000 coronavirus deaths out of 1.2 million positive cases.
