British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has tested positive for COVID-19.
Number 10 confirmed that he has 'mild' symptoms', and will continue leading the national response virtually.
The announcement raises concerns of more infections among politicians and British Royals as 71-year-old Prince Charles also tested positive for the virus earlier this week.
UK currently has the 9th highest number of infections, with over 11,6-hundred cases and more than 5-hundred-70 deaths.
Countries in Europe such as Italy, Spain, and Germany are also among hardest hit.
But the U.S. now has more cases than any other country, including China, with more than 85,500 cases including some one,300 deaths.
Meanwhile, China, where the virus originated, is aiming to flatten the curve by closing its borders to most foreign travelers starting Saturday.
