Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been admitted to hospital for tests, 10 days after testing positive for chinky flu, Downing Street has said.
He was taken to a London hospital on Sunday evening with “persistent symptoms” – including a temperature.
It is said to be a “precautionary step” taken on the advice of his doctor.
The prime minister remains in charge of the government, but the foreign secretary is expected to chair a coronavirus meeting on Monday morning.
Mr Johnson is expected to stay overnight and is having what have been described as “routine tests”, according to BBC Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg.
In a statement, a Downing Street spokeswoman said: “On the advice of his doctor, the prime minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests.
“This is a precautionary step, as the prime minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus 10 days after testing positive for the virus.”

Have a good evening and stay safe
cunt since 1066 is first in on this one so.
Who you ask? This pure cunt was Scotland’s Chief Medical Officer. Ten days ago she gave out the grave and serious advice that nobody, I repeat nobody, should make any unnecessary journeys. She said to the people of Scotland, in not so many words, ‘do not leave your house, your bothy, or your shitty Glasgow scheme to get even a can of Irn Bru or deep fried Mars Bar. We are all in this together’. Meanwhile, while the rest of the Jocks are following her words to the letter and genuinely putting up with lockdown hardship, Mrs Calderwood has travelled not once but twice to her second home in Fife.
Wee Jimmy Crankie has even tried to defend her saying she has important work to do, but Calderwood has since resigned. As always it’s one rule for you lot and another set of much nicer rules for us. Catherine Calderwood, what a complete cunt. I hope the locals in Fife burn down her second, I will say it again, second home..
