Bloomberg News reports:
U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson remains in isolation with a high temperature, more than a week after testing positive for coronavirus. Johnson made the announcement in a video posted on Twitter on Friday, as the latest official figures showed 3,605 people had died from the disease in the U.K. by April 2.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said later that two nurses and two health care assistants had died in the past day, an indication of the toll the pandemic is beginning to take on the health service.
The premier has been locked away in his Downing Street apartment for seven days. “I still have a temperature,” he said in his video. “In accordance with government advice I must continue my self-isolation.”
