"At the recommendation of his doctors, the prime minister was admitted to the hospital for analysis," a statement from his Downing Street office said.

On Friday, April 3, 55-year-old Johnson charged with fever, coughing and persistent fatigue. This came just a day after the test for COVID-19 came out positive.

It held on Tuesday the first government meeting on the COVID-19 crisis.
The measures undertaken by various countries to put people under stringent lockdowns to stop the spread of the coronavirus have experienced an unforeseen and unique benefit. The outbreak has, at least in part, contributed to a noticeable drop in pollution and greenhouse gas emissions in some countries.
“Since the lockdown: Venice's canals have become crystal clear. Italy's coasts have dolphins coming nearer and nearer. Japan now has deer roaming free in the streets, and Thailand: the same with monkeys. China has record-breaking pollution cuts. The Earth has already begun showing signs of amazing things that are happening from the absence of human pollution. What if- and hear me out..- what if the entire human population used this as an opportunity to restart society on a greener, more environmentally conscious foot. What we're seeing in the span of a couple of days is amazing. A pipe dream.” Gina Mayer
The drastic measures enforced by China during the coronavirus outbreak have slashed deadly air pollution, potentially saving the lives of tens of thousands of people, a Stanford University researcher said.
Klopp said the pandemic could make companies and governments realize that other threats to humanity, including climate change, could be the most devastating and harmful.
"As we move to restart these economies, we need to use this moment to think about what we value," she said. "Do we want to go back to the status quo, or do we want to tackle these big structural problems and restructure our economy and reduce emissions and pollution?"
Now we must realize the harmful impacts we made to our planet are the deadliest one, we must understand that we have to stop pollution and finally start being friendly to our planet.
Is the pandemic virus a sign to stop humans actions against planet?
Let’s think about this one more time.
When staying in quarantine, people start creating funny things. Some people invent funny games, other creative occupations. While spending the whole day at home, let’s see how others are spending their time, maybe we find something good for us.
A person in lockdown starts seeing his house as a big and luxurious castle, or a battlefield, even that floor is lava. Jimmy Fallon was wandering where the human creation can get, and started a challenge with the hashtag #ImSoBored.
The comedian asked people to tell him funny things they have done to pass the time in quarantine. Yes, boredom is the path to creationism, new ideas and funny actions.
