It was reported this morning that Prime Minister Boris Johnson entered the hospital this morning after showing symptoms of the coronavirus over the weekend. Now he’s been moved into intensive care as his symptoms have worsened:
BIRMINGHAM MAIL – Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved to intensive care after his coronavirus symptoms worsened, Downing Street has confirmed.
Mr Johnson remains in hospital following his admission on Sunday with continuing coronavirus symptoms.
A Number 10 spokesman said: “Since Sunday evening, the Prime Minister has been under the care of doctors at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, after being admitted with persistent symptoms of coronavirus.
“Over the course of this afternoon, the condition of the Prime Minister has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved to the intensive care unit at the hospital.
“The PM has asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is the First Secretary of State, to deputise for him where necessary.
“The PM is receiving excellent care, and thanks all NHS staff for their hard work and dedication.”
This is not a good sign for the 55-year-old Prime Minister but I do hope and pray he turns around quickly and gets on the mend. I’m sure he’s getting the best NHS can offer.
For the rest of us who are quarantining at home, it’s just further proof that we need to continue to take the coronavirus seriously and try to avoid getting or spreading it. In my own state we are getting close to 3,000 cases and we’ve already had 33 deaths as of today, that are spread all around the state fairly evenly.
