CM – British Prime Minister should self-isolate when not working as a minister, Covid ve tests


UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Treasury Secretary Rishi Sunak are limited to work in their offices and tested daily for COVID-19 after being identified as a contact for someone who tests positive for the virus.

« The Prime Minister and the Chancellor were contacted by NHS Test and Trace as contacts of someone who tested positive for COVID, » read a statement from Johnson’s Downing Street office on Sunday.

Usually everyone is identified as a contact person by the traceability system is required by law to self-isolate for 10 days.

However, the top two government ministers will instead take part in a pilot study that will allow them to continue working from their offices and only isolating themselves when they are not working.

« You will be participating in the daily pilot for contact testing to help widen her You can work from Downing Street, ”said Downing Street. “They will only conduct essential government business during this period.” The UK will lift almost all remaining coronavirus restrictions on Monday, even as the country faces a new wave of COVID-19 cases. Ministers argue that the vaccination program has largely broken the link between cases and mortality.

However, the surge in cases causes problems for employers as more than half a million people were asked to self-test in the week leading up to July 7th for being exposed to the virus.

The pilot, excluding Johnson and Sunak, is currently running on 20 workplaces, including transportation and immigration infrastructure, and eligibility will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

The study aims to investigate whether daily contact tests are an effective way of identifying new cases and whether they have an impact on the transmission of the virus.

In mid-August, the UK plans to change its rules on self-isolation to relieve double-vaccinated people from the obligation, Days to stay at home.
