British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson was tested positive for the novel coronavirus on Friday.

Mr Johnson has tested positive for coronavirus, Downing Street says. His symptoms are mild and he will continue to lead the government response to the virus while he self-isolates, a spokesman says.

At the moment, health authorities across the UK say equipment such as masks, gloves and gowns should only be used if patients have suspected symptoms or have been diagnosed with coronavirus. But the NHS Confederation says staff feels “at-risk” of contracting Covid-19 unless they wear PPE while dealing with all patients.

Guidelines from the World Health Organization currently recommend health staff wear a full gown and visor.
