LONDON, Nov 15 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been told to self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, his Downing Street office said on Sunday.

"He will carry on working from Downing Street, including on leading the government's response to the coronavirus pandemic," a spokesman for Johnson - who was hospitalised with COVID-19 earlier this year - said.

"The PM is well and does not have any symptoms of COVID-19." (Writing by William Schomberg; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
