Now the prime minister is going into quarantine
The pressure became too great: Boris Johnson is now going into self-isolation after contact with a corona infected person.
Back and forth on Downing Street in London: Prime Minister Boris Johnson (57) is now going into self-isolation. According to the British newspaper “The Sun” now a government spokesman known just hours after he had reported something else. Johnson had contact with his corona-infected health minister Sajid Javid (51) and would have to isolate himself for ten days according to the statutes of the contact tracing authority of the national health service NHS.
His finance minister, Rishi Sunak, is now also going into self-isolation
But first it was said that Johnson and the also affected Treasury Secretary Rishi Sunak (41) would take part in a pilot project and would be tested daily in order to escape a quarantine. Now, however, the complete role followed backwards. Most likely because of the great public pressure: Immediately after the first report, resentment arose in the population because of the special treatment of high-ranking politicians. Hundreds of thousands of British people are currently in quarantine and have no way of being tested.
