Johnson's self-isolation risks upsetting a busy week as the United Kingdom enters its third week of reimposed restrictions and the PM was due to chair a series of key Covid-19 meetings.

But it is not clear how numerous plans will now go ahead while Mr Johnson, who was seriously ill with Covid-19 in April, is in isolation, although he is said to be feeling "well" and does not have any symptoms.

"I have no symptoms, but am following the rules and will be working from No10 as I continue to lead the government's pandemic response".

Such a move could allow more MPs, including Mr Johnson, to attend Commons' debates virtually and possibly even Prime Minister's Questions as he self-isolates.

The Daily Mail reported sources as saying that Johnson showed Cummings texts allegedly proving he had briefed against Symonds, formerly the head of communications for the Conservative Party.

Downing Street has not said how long Johnson will be in isolation for.

With Harden, there is $41.3 million due this coming season, $44.3 due in 2021-22 and a player option for $47.4 million in 2022-23. Stick with NBA .com for more updates surrounding this developing situation, including potential trade destinations for Westbrook.

There are conversations taking place with the parliamentary authorities to see whether he can still contribute to the Commons. Downing Street confirmed that Mr Johnson was present in a meeting with Tory MPs last week, where one representative was infected.

The two men were not wearing face coverings and did not appear to be two metres apart in a photo taken at Downing Street which Mr Anderson posted on Facebook.

"On Friday I lost my sense of taste at the same time my wife had a bad headache".

"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 reason is because the politician have been in contact with a person who tested positive for coronavirus.

In an attempt to show he was not letting the upheaval distract him, his office said Johnson would make a string of "critical announcements" over the next two weeks on issues from green policy to a return to regional COVID-19 rules from December 2.

"For those of us in the cabinet, we don't tend to immerse ourselves in the gossip of who said what to who", Eustice added.
