British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s most-senior adviser Dominic Cummings has self-isolated at home after showing signs of the coronavirus, making him the latest top U.K. official to be forced to work from home as the virus spreads around Downing Street.
A spokesman for the government said Monday that Mr. Cummings hasn’t been tested for the virus. The spokesman added that contractors have been hired to bolster Downing Street as a number of senior staffers fall ill.
Mr. Johnson himself said he was diagnosed with coronavirus on Friday. The British health minister and chief medical officer also went into isolation. Mr. Cummings was seen running from Downing Street on Friday.
