Boris Johnson will carry on self-isolating after continuing to display mild symptoms of the coronavirus including having a temperature.

"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", a weary-looking Johnson, sitting in a chair with his shirt open at the neck, said in a Twitter video message.

In a video message posted online on Wednesday night from Downing Street, where he has been in self-isolation since announcing on 27 March that he had contracted the virus, Johnson said testing was the "way through".

The prime minister tested positive for the virus last Friday and had been due to come out of self-isolation today. "As I have said for weeks and weeks this (testing) is the way through", Johnson said. "Please, please stick with the guidance now". "This country has made a huge effort, a huge sacrifice, done absolutely brilliantly well in delaying the spread of the virus, let's stick with it now".

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

While he admitted that there was a "massive amount of work to do", he called on the life sciences industry to "step up to the plate and do everything they possibly can" to deliver.

At the government's daily coronavirus press conference on Wednesday night, Mr Hancock laid out a five point plan on how the United Kingdom would boost its capacity to test more for coronavirus.

He was seen on Thursday applauding the NHS and other key workers from his flat in Downing Street.

He said he was not relying on new antibody blood tests to meet the goal, which was announced after criticism of the UK's testing strategy.

"Everyday he's been involved, I've been talking to him on the screen rather than in person, so he's continued to work through it, he's battling valiantly on and I'm sure we all hope that he gets will soon", the Cabinet Minister said.

Labour has called for more details on what kind of tests will be involved.
