London: UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is self-isolating after a meeting with a Member of Parliament who later tested positive for the novel coronavirus, Downing Street said.

Johnson had been notified by the National Health Service (NHS) Test and Trace that he came in contact of someone who has tested positive and he must self-isolate, the prime minister's spokesperson said on Sunday.

"Today I was notified by NHS Test and Trace that I must self-isolate as I have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, but am following the rules and will be working from No10 as I continue to lead the government’s pandemic response," UK PM Boris Johnson said in a tweet.


Johnson contracted the coronavirus back in March and spent three nights in intensive care at St. Thomas' Hospital in central London in April after testing positive for COVID-19.

Under the NHS Test and Trace rules, his self-isolation should run for 10 days and end on November 26.

Johnson had a meeting lasting about 35 minutes with some MPs at his office in 10 Downing Street on Thursday morning, including Lee Anderson — the MP for Ashfield in the East Midlands region of England.
