BORIS Johnson due to make a series of ‘critical announcements’ over Zoom while self-isolating
The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is self-isolating after coming into contact with an MP who tested positive for coronavirus. Now, key announcements that he was due to make this week regarding lockdown restrictions, Brexit and the spending review will have to be made remotely via Zoom.
Johnson was alerted by Test and Trace after he met Tory MP Lee Anderson on Thursday, November 12. Johnson and Anderson were photographed meeting without wearing masks and standing mess than the advised two meters apart. Downing Street has confirmed on Monday, November 16 that the planned announcements will go ahead, despite the fact that Johnson is stuck in his flat above No 10 until November 26.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock, who will lead today’s No10 press conference at 5pm, said the PM will “no doubt driving things forward this week by Zoom.”
