The Housing secretary Robert Jenrick has been providing an update on the health of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was taken to a London hospital on Sunday evening 10 days after he tested positive for coronavirus.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4, Jenrick said: “The Prime Minister has now had persistent symptoms for 10 days after he tested positive and as a result he went to hospital last night on the advice of his doctor.
"This was not an emergency admission, it was planned admission to have some routine tests. Those tests are under way and he will stay in hospital as long as he needs to. I have heard he is doing well and I look forward to him being back in number 10 as soon as possible.
“He will take the advice of the doctors and nurses in the hospitals that are doing those tests and act accordingly."
