Coronavirus: Boris Johnson could stay in isolation beyond tomorrow as symptoms continue

Boris Johnson could be forced to delay his exit from self-isolation after Downing St confirmed the PM was still showing symptoms.

Speaking on Thursday morning, the Prime Minister's spokesman told reporters that Mr Johnson "continues to have mild symptoms but he does still have symptoms".

He added: “Were following the guidelines from PHE and from the chief medical officer which states that you need to self isolate for  a period of seven days so no change in that.”

Asked if leaving isolation while still displaying symptoms was reckless, Downing St said the Prime Minister would follow medical advice.

Mr Johnson's spokesman said: “We will follow the guidelines and we will follow the best UK medical and scientific advice, you can rest assured on that.”

Pushed on if that meant the PM would be sticking to his original plan of leaving isolation on Friday, the spokesman said: “What i said is we will follow the best medical and scientific advice.”

He continued: “We’re fully aware of what the guidelines are and we’re fully aware of what the advice of the CMO is on this. We will follow that to the letter.”

But the he guidelines sayy if you still have a high temperature for example you should keep isolating until your temperature returns to normal

Mr Johnson's spokesman added: “We are more aware than anyone of what the guidelines are and we will ensure they are followed.”

He stressed it was “deeply unhelpful” to be asking “questions about points in the future” and that they were “working to” seven days target.
