boris-johnson-tests-positive-for-coronavirus

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has tested positive for the coronavirus, he announced this on his personal page on social media.


Johnson mentioned in a video that he has "mild symptoms" of coronavirus, including fever and "a persistent cough." Johnson is the first world leader found to be infected with the virus. 

German Chancellor Angela Merkel decided to be under self-quarantine after her doctor was found infected with the coronavirus. She has undergone two tests that were confirmed negative, but there are awaiting results for the third test.

Johnson and Merkel said that they will continue to work from home, being self-isolates.


"Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus," Johnson said via Twitter. "I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government's response via video-conference as we fight this virus. Together we will beat this."


If Johnson would not be able to accomplish his official duties, his role would be temporarily done by Dominic Raab, the U.K.'s foreign secretary and first secretary of state.


On the same day, some hours earlier the British health minister Matt Hancock, announced on his Twitter page that he is self-isolating at home with mild symptoms after he has tested positive for coronavirus.

The U.K. currently has over 12,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus, and 580 people have died from COVID-19, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

why-a-mask-with-a-valve-is-not-suitable-for-protection-against-coronavirus

Such protective equipment can make you dangerous to others.


Sometimes protective fabric masks are equipped with a special valve.  In this case, the mask works like this - you inhale air through filters and exhale it through a one-way valve.  Thus, warm air comes out from under the mask faster, it becomes easier to breathe, the mask is easier to wear, and glasses will not fog up.

We put on masks for two reasons.  Firstly, we hope that they will protect us from COVID-19 (however, disputes are still underway regarding the effectiveness of masks).  Secondly, more importantly, the mask does not allow us to infect others, if we are sick and do not suspect it.


 The valve allows free passage of air as it exhales.  This means that an infected person will spread particles of the virus around him as if he weren’t wearing any protection at all.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend using masks and respirators with valves to prevent infection with this disease.


 Such protection can be worn in conditions of smog, dust and smoke - for example, at a construction site or factory where harmful particles are floating in the air.  But the mask with the valve will not stop the spread of the virus.
