LONDON — U.K. police investigated allegations Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s chief adviser broke lockdown rules, the Guardian and Mirror reported in a joint investigation Friday.

On March 31, officers attended an address in Durham where a member of the public claimed to have seen Dominic Cummings, more than 250 miles from his north London home, the papers reported. At the time, the U.K government advised against all but essential travel.

“Day six is a turning point, I was told: that’s when you either get better or head for ICU,” she wrote. “But was Dom fighting off the bug or was he heading for a ventilator? Who knew? I sat on his bed staring at his chest, trying to count his breaths per minute.”
