British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said he was “confident” that Prime Minister Boris Johnson would defeat the new crown virus.
10 Downing Street stated that Johnson continued to stay in the intensive care unit that night, but his condition was stable, and he was inhaling oxygen but not using a ventilator.
Rab’s temporary acting Prime Minister Johnson presided over the work. At a daily outbreak briefing on Tuesday afternoon, he said that Johnson is currently “in good spirits” and does not use a ventilator.
Rab said that Johnson is not only a colleague but also a friend. He also called Johnson, 55, a “fighter” and is currently “in good spirits.”
One day after being hospitalized with the new coronavirus, Johnson’s condition deteriorated, and he was transferred to the intensive care unit.
The queen sent Johnson and his girlfriend a message that she missed their situation and hoped that the prime minister would recover soon.
World leaders have sent a message to Johnson, hoping that he will recover soon.
Downing Street stated that Johnson was transferred to the intensive care unit at 8 pm local time on Monday, which was the recommendation of his medical team.
Mason, a BBC political affairs reporter, said that Johnson was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure, and he probably had a ventilator beside him.
Cabinet Secretary Michael Gove said that if anything changes in Johnson’s situation, “10 Downing Street will keep the country informed at any time.”
Recently, there have been frequent infections of senior officials in the British government. Goff also announced on Tuesday that his family members had segregated themselves because of symptoms of the disease. He has no signs and can work from home.
A spokesman for No. 10 Downing Street issued a statement saying: “The Prime Minister has been in a stable condition and a good mood overnight. He is receiving standard oxygen therapy and can breathe normally without the help of other equipment.”
The spokesman said that the Prime Minister did not suffer from pneumonia and did not need mechanical ventilators or noninvasive breathing support.
The chairman of the British Thoracic Society, Dr. Jon Bennett, said the news was gratifying because the prime minister received a “standard oxygen treatment” through his nose or mask. After all, in more severe cases, mechanical support for oxygen delivery, such as the use of a nasal oxygen tube or a more invasive ventilator, continuously increases the flow of oxygen.
The Prime Minister’s spokesman said the government’s sentiment was “firm” and that the ministers had Johnson’s apparent plan to respond to the outbreak.
Johnson, 55, began self-quarantine ten days ago because of a positive New Coronavirus test.
On Sunday evening (April 5), Johnson, due to persistent symptoms (including fever and cough), followed the doctor’s advice and went to St. Thomas Hospital in central London for routine examination.
This news was released shortly after the Queen of England spoke to the nation…
Ian Duncan Smith, the former leader of the Conservative Party, said the government would “continue to function” and the cabinet will make collective decisions.
A friend of Prime Minister Johnson, the former governor’s public relations director Will Walden, told the BBC that Johnson “looks healthier than he looks.”
He said Johnson is very effective in attacking the opponent’s backhand on the tennis court. He often runs, does not smoke, and drinks moderately.
So I think that if anyone is physically and mentally healthy and can fight this disease, then Prime Minister Johnson is such a person.
Prime Minister Johnson is still in charge of government work, but Foreign Minister Rab presided over the coronavirus epidemic meeting on Monday (April 6).
Johnson said in a tweet that he kept in touch with his team and would work together to deal with the virus and ensure the safety of everyone.
He also especially thanked the “excellent NHS staff” for taking care of him and other patients, adding: “You are the best in the UK.”
