'Important everybody sticks to same rules': PM makes U-turn on isolation and urges caution

- SKY NEWS - JULY 19, 2021 - Amy Coles - Contirbuição Ernesto Matera -

Downing Street had said Mr Johnson and Mr Sunak will be taking in a pilot scheme whereby they will be tested daily and so do not have to quarantine - but that plan has now been scrapped.

Boris Johnson says he "did look briefly at the idea" of taking part in a daily-test pilot scheme but thinks it's "far more important that everybody sticks to the same rules" so will be self-isolating until next Monday.

Mr Johnson said: "Like hundreds of thousands of other people across the country, I've been pinged. I've been asked to self-isolate by the Test Trace and Isolate system."

Ahead of England lifting restrictions tomorrow, the PM urged everyone to "please, please, please, be cautious".

The prime minister and Chancellor Rishi Sunak are now self-isolating following uproar earlier today over their original plans to avoid staying at home after Sajid Javid's positive COVID-19 test, Downing Street said.
