UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson Still Self-Isolating

In Scotland the Government put together a testing oversight group. They are tasked with keeping track the provision of tests for the disease.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will remain in self-isolation, after testing positive for the COVID-19 last week. The Prime Minister said, “In my own case, although I’m feeling better and I’ve done my seven days of isolation, alas I still have one of the symptoms, a minor symptom, I still have a temperature.”

He added “And so in accordance with Government advice I must continue my self-isolation until that symptom itself goes.

Finally, he ended the video by saying “But we’re working clearly the whole time on our programme to defeat the virus. You’ll have seen the big announcement yesterday about 100,000 tests a day by the end of the month.”

The testing oversight group will be responsible for the increase in capacity of the labs in Scotland, along with the Scottish side of the delivery of the UK initiative to allow “non-NHS testing”.

They would also be responsible for the creating and development of antibody testing, which can tell if a person has previously had the virus, this is to ensure that the tests can be given out efficiently when they become available.

In Scotland, a total of 172 positive COVID-19 patients have sadly passed away while 3,001 people have now tested positive for the COVID-19.

176 people are in ICU with the COVID-19 symptoms, the number increased with 14 persons from yesterday.
