LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was diagnosed with the coronavirus more than a week ago, has been admitted to a hospital for tests.
Johnson's office said he was hospitalized Sunday because he still has symptoms 10 days after testing positive for the virus.
Downing St. said it was a "precautionary step" and he remains in charge of the government.
Johnson, 55, has been quarantined in his Downing St. residence since being diagnosed with COVID-19 on March 26.
