Coronavirus: Prime Minister Boris Johnson insists he's feeling 'better' in latest update as concerned Brits say he looks 'more ill' today

He's set to remain in isolation for now

Concerned Brits think Boris Johnson still looks poorly despite the Prime Minister insisting he's feeling "better" in his latest update, following his coronavirus diagnosis.

A Downing Street spokesperson confirmed the news earlier this week that the PM would remain in isolation. He still had "mild" symptoms of COVID-19, they said.

And on Twitter this afternoon (Friday, March 3), Boris offered an update on his condition as he addressed the nation from his home at Downing Street.

How is Boris Johnson doing?

He says in the clip: "Hi folks, quick update from me on the campaign against coronavirus. First of all, in my own case, 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.

"And so, in accordance with government advice I must continue my self-isolation until that symptom itself goes.

"But we're working, clearly, the whole time on our programme to defeat the virus."

Despite sounding upbeat and saying he felt an improvement, his followers thought he still looked rough.

One said: "@BorisJohnson you still look poorly, Boris, but better than you did the other day, get some rest if you can, and thank you for all you are doing. Hoping each coming day sees you feeling better."

Urged to get some rest

Another replied: "Johnson is looking more ill with each video."

A third urged him: "Please, please, please get some rest."

You are looking quite poorly.

Someone else said: "Get well soon, Boris. You still don't look well, try and take it easy. Need you back fighting fit."

A fifth tweeted back: "Hi Boris, you are looking quite poorly, hope you're ok and feeling much better soon."
