Dominic Raab is Boris Johnson's nominated stand-in (next in line)

Boris Johnson has said he is only suffering mild symptoms of Covid-19 and will continue working in the coming days – but if he is incapacitated by the virus, the foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, has been nominated as the “designated survivor”.

That means he would take up the prime minister’s responsibilities if Johnson were unable to perform them himself. Aides insist Johnson can continue to work by video link, like much of the rest of the workforce.

Even outside a health crisis, Raab holds the title of first secretary of state, as well as foreign secretary – in effect, the prime minister’s deputy.
