“On the advice of his doctor, the prime minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests,” his Downing Street office said in a statement. Johnson is expected to stay overnight.

Britain is in the middle of a serious coronavirus outbreak, with almost 50,000 confirmed hospital cases and nearly 5,000 deaths so far.
Earlier Health Minister Matt Hancock and heir to the throne, Prince Charles, were among the high-profile in the country who tested positive for the virus but they have recovered.
