Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus.
I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus.
Together we will beat this. #StayHomeSaveLives

You get tested with mild symptoms while people with serious symptoms are unable to be tested? – @CatenaccioEraMad how you got tested when most people are being refused tests & frontline staff aren’t being tested isn’t it New moon with faceNew moon with faceNew moon with face – @goobervisionHow are you getting tested yet frontline staff can’t get a test. How to demoralising to NHS you were clapping for just a few hours ago. – @10lugubriousHope you have problems getting a ventilator if you need one – join the reality of the rest of us. Convenient for you – you don’t have to answer for the consequences of your INACTION. – @hawkins_caroleYou have worked harder than any PM could ever have been expected to. Get well soon Boris. A grateful country wishes all the very best. – @markvipondShould people with mild symptoms be tested Mr Johnson? Yes, they all should. Should all NHS staff be tested? Yes they should. Should there be testing in the community. Yes there should. Contact tracing? Maybe too late now. Where are the 25K tests/day? – @MartinRemains
