British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in Intensive Care with COVID-19

UPDATE:

Boris Johnson has been moved to intensive care after being hospitalized Sunday for persistent symptoms of the coronavirus. According to health officials in London, the 55-year-old British Prime Minister is not yet on a ventilator and is conscious. His pregnant girlfriend reportedly is also infected with the virus.

Johnson is the highest ranking government official in the world so far to be hospitalized in ICU for the virus. Up until today he has been keeping up his duties as Prime Minister and as the head of the coronavirus task force for England. Now an alternate Prime Minister is being sought.

Due to a persistent high temperature ten days after being diagnosed with coronavirus, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 55, has been hospitalized for testing.

According to reports, the Prime Minister is still battling COVID-19 and its symptoms such as fever and cough.

Reports are that this was not an emergency admission but that Johnson was admitted to hospital for testing and monitoring.

Meanwhile 93-year-old Queen Elizabeth addressed the nation today. It was a rare speech given by the queen who wanted to reassure England that there is light at the end of the tunnel with the virus and that “we will succeed.” Her son, Prince Charles, 71, was also diagnosed with the coronavirus seven days ago and is now reportedly out of self-isolation.
