Boris Johnson, the British prime minister, has been transferred to intensive care as his Coronavirus condition worsened.

The prime minister who was put on admission on Sunday night after the symptoms failed to subside has now been transferred to the ICU at St Thomas’ Hospital in London on Monday evening as a precaution.

One of Johnson’s aides said the prime minister was moved there on the advice of his medical team in case he requires a ventilator

A statement from Johnson’s office stated that;

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.

It also expressed that;

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 is receiving excellent care, and thanks all NHS staff for their hard work and dedication.

He had tested positive for the disease last week and went into self-isolation.

Johnson is conscious and has asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab to deputise for him ‘where necessary’ at this critical point in the UK’s war on the virus.

On March 27, the Prime Minister tested positive for coronavirus and started self-isolating while leading his team of ministers and officials. 

According to Worldometer, the UK has so far recorded 51,608 cases of the disease and 5,373 deaths while 135 people have recovered.
