Boris Johnson’s pregnant girlfriend Saturday revealed she has been in bed for seven days with symptoms of coronavirus, an enemy disease that has also put the Prime Minister into isolation
Carrie Symonds, 32, posted on Twitter earlier today and said: ‘I’ve spent the past week in bed with the main symptoms of Coronavirus. I haven’t needed to be tested and, after seven days of rest, I feel stronger and I’m on the mend.
‘Being pregnant with Covid-19 is obviously worrying. To other pregnant women, please do read and follow the most up to date guidance which I found to be v reassuring.’

Pregnant women were placed in a vulnerable group by the Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty on March 16.
The latest figures have shown that there are 41,903 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK with a current death toll of 4,313.
Symonds’s announcement comes after fiancee Boris Johnson was forced into isolation last Friday with coronavirus symptoms.
The Prime Minister was due to exit quarantine yesterday, seven days after testing positive, but in Twitter video message yesterday he confirmed that he continues to have a high temperature and will therefore remain in isolation.
He said: ‘Although I’m feeling better, and I’ve done my seven days of isolation, alas I still have one of the symptoms, a minor symptom – I still have a temperature.
‘So in accordance with Government advice I must continue my self-isolation until that symptom itself goes.’
He urged people today to stick to the regulations over the weekend and not to be tempted by the forecast of good weather. Watch the video through this link
