Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has expressed his best wishes for the good health of PM of United Kingdom, Mr Boris Johnson as he tests positive for COVID 19.

“Dear PM Boris Johnson, You’re a fighter and you will overcome this challenge as well. Prayers for your good health and best wishes in ensuring the healthy UK” Modi said.


In a tweet on Friday, the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has revealed that he has tested positive for coronavirus.

“Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus,” he tweeted

Johnson was last seen on Thursday night, clapping outside No 10 as part of a nationwide gesture to thank NHS staff and carers.

He was tested at No 10 by NHS staff, on the personal advice of England’s chief medical officer Prof Chris Whitty.

Johnson’s spokesman earlier this week said that if the PM was unwell and unable to work, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, as the first secretary of state, would stand-in.

Johnson’s fiancee Carrie Symonds is also self-isolating.

She is who is several months pregnant.
