'Fit as a butcher's dog': Johnson self-quarantines

Johnson announced on Sunday (November 15) that he had been told by the the National Health Service's test-and-trace program to self-isolate for two weeks.

It has been confirmed that a lawmaker, Lee Anderson, who attended a 35-minute meeting with him on Thursday (November 12) had tested positive for COVID-19.

When Johnson caught COVID-19 in March, he tried to work through the illness "in denial."

He eventually ended up in an intensive care unit wearing an oxygen mask and was ultimately out of action for almost a month.
