The Prime Minister’s six-week-old baby daughter has been affected “quite badly” by Covid.
Downing Street had announced earlier that a member of the Johnson family was ill – but no one was named.
The PM cancelled a trip to Lancashire to be with his wife Carrie, son Wilfred and baby Romy.
Mr Johnson’s official spokesman said last week:
“The PM is following the guidance to do daily tests and limit contact with others, as I said [the] positive test was Wednesday so the PM will continue following this guidance up to [and] including Tuesday of next week.
“For reference, the guidance is to take an LFD [lateral flow device] test every day for seven days, or until 10 days after the household member who has Covid-19 started their self-isolation period if this is earlier and, in this instance it’s not, so it’s seven days.”
The Daily Mail reports Romy is now “on the mend”.
