‘While We Have Faced Challenges Before, This One Is Different’: COVID-19 In The U.K.
This weekend, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was admitted to the hospital, ten days after he tested positive for coronavirus. Johnson’s office said the prime minister’s case was not an emergency, and his hospital admission was a “precautionary step.”

The virus has infected at least 40,000 people in Britain, including Prince Charles, the Queen’s son.
