British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been admitted to the ICU of a London hospital on Monday, as reported by the BBC. When incapacitated, it will be the Foreign Minister and First Secretary of State, Dominic Raab, who will assume power during the recovery of the conservative leader.
Boris Johnson tested positive on March 27 and last Friday reported that he would continue in isolation because he still had a “mild” symptom, specifically fever.
The British Prime Minister is admitted to Saint Thomas Hospital in London. A statement on its evolution has been released. “Since Sunday night, the Prime Minister has been in the care of doctors at St Thomas Hospital, London, after being admitted with persistent symptoms of coronavirus. In the course of the afternoon, his condition has worsened and, on the advice of the medical team, he has been transferred to the hospital’s intensive care unit. He adds: “He is receiving excellent treatment, and thanks the entire team of the National Health Service (NHS) for their work and dedication.”
Johnson’s entry occurred on Sunday, shortly before the British could see on television the fifth speech to the nation of Elizabeth II in her 68 years of reign. “United we will win and success will be everyone’s. Better times will come, “said the Queen of England, in a historic address on the occasion of the coronavirus crisis, which has claimed the lives of almost 5,000 people in the United Kingdom.
