Refreshing News: UK’s Leaders, Boris Johnson Tests Negative To COVID-19

Good news coming from the United Kingdom (UK) has it that the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, who was hit weeks back from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which also landed him in the intensive care unit has now tested negative for COVID-19. This good news was made known to the media by his spokesman earlier today.

Johnson spent a week in hospital including several days in intensive care after contracting the virus, and said he owed his life to the medical staff who treated him. With the number of coronavirus deaths in Britain hitting 11,329 – a rise of 717 compared to the previous day – the Ministry of Defence said it was deploying 200 military personnel across the country in support of ambulance services.

Downing Street said the soldiers would carry out a variety of roles including driving vehicles, taking calls, manning response centres and supporting paramedic crews. Interim chief medical officer Jason Leitch meanwhile urged families of those who have died during the outbreak not to delay funerals, in a bid to stop a backlog. Excluding Northern Ireland, 88,621 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in Britain as of Monday morning.
