Keir Starmer self-isolating AGAIN after coronavirus outbreak among Labour staff
The Labour leader is not experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 and will continue to work from his north London home, a spokesperson said. The announcement comes after he quarantined in September because one of his children began displaying symptoms. After the child tested negative for the virus Sir Keir returned to normal duties.
On Saturday a spokesperson for the Labour leader said: “Keir is well and not showing any symptoms.
“He will now be working from home.”
Last month Boris Johnson was forced to self-isolate after he had come into close contact with an MP who later tested positive for COVID-19.
The Prime Minister continued to keep abreast of Government affairs by holding calls with members of his team.
He also answered Prime Minister’s Questions remotely on Zoom.
Writing on Twitter at the time, Mr Johnson said: “Today I was notified by NHS Test and Trace that I must self-isolate as I have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
“I have no symptoms, but am following the rules and will be working from No 10 as I continue to lead the government’s pandemic response.”
A No 10 spokesman said the Prime Minister did not have any symptoms.
In a WhatsApp message to Tory MPs seen by the BBC the PM added: “The good news is that NHS Test and Trace continues to improve.
“The bad news is that I have been pinged!
“It doesn’t matter that I feel fine – better than ever – or that my body is bursting with antibodies because I have already had the damn thing.
“The rules are the rules and they are there to stop the spread of the disease.”
