Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been admitted to hospital for tests, 10 days after showing positive for the coronavirus, Downing Street said on Sunday.

Mr Johnson is the first world leader to be taken to hospital for the coronavirus.

Downing Street said it was a "precautionary measure" and that he remained in charge of the government and was in contact with ministerial colleagues and officials.

“On the advice of his doctor, the Prime Minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests," his office said.

“This is a precautionary step, as the Prime Minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus 10 days after testing positive for the virus.

“The Prime Minister thanks NHS staff for all of their incredible hard work and urges the public to continue to follow the government’s advice to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.”

Mr Johnson has persistent symptoms, including a high temperature. His admission was not an emergency, but he is expected to stay in hospital overnight.

It was considered sensible for doctors to see Mr Johnson in person, Downing Street said.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab is expected to chair the government's next coronavirus meeting on Monday morning.

Mr Johnson was last seen in public applauding the NHS and other key workers from his flat in Downing Street on Thursday.

His admission to hospital comes a day after his pregnant fiancee Carrie Symonds said she had also experienced coronavirus symptoms.

Earlier, British health secretary Matt Hancock was asked how ill Mr Johnson was.

“He’s OK," Mr Hancock told Sky News. "I’ve been talking to him every day, several times a day.

"He’s very much got his hand on the tiller. But he’s still got a temperature.

“He’s working away inside Downing Street. He’s in good spirits."

On Sunday evening, Britain's Queen Elizabeth II reassured the public that "better days will return", where people will be able to reunite with friends and family after the coronavirus pandemic.
