UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson will not be tested for coronavirus even though he recently met with this Health Minister who tested positive to the virus.
A Downing Street source said there was no need for the Boris Johnson to be tested for Coronavirus because he had not been in close contact with the Health Minister, Nadine Dorries and he currently does not have any symptoms.
Nadine Dorries, the health minister for patient safety who helped draw up plans to tackle coronavirus, fell ill on Friday and tested positive for the virus on Tuesday.
She had attended a function at Downing Street for the group Women in Westminster on Thursday evening, where Boris Johnson had also been present.
The source was quoted to have said: “We follow the advice of Public Health England and the CMO. The prime minister has no symptoms so there is no need for a test. “The prime minister was not in close contact with Nadine Dorries. The advice is that you would have to be within 2 metres of someone to pass it on.
“It is also worth restating the advice on washing hands, which the prime minister does regularly.”
