British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s condition has improved after his third night in intensive care. Britain’s Minister of Culture Oliver Dowden told BBC. Johnson was able to sit up and speak to the medical staff, Dowden said. The prime minister is suffering from the lung disease Covid-19 caused by the coronavirus.
On April 5, nine days after the announcement of his corona infection, Johnson was admitted to a London hospital. He wrote on Twitter: “Last night, on the advice of my doctor, I went to the hospital to have some routine tests done because I still have corona symptoms. I am hopeful and will be sharing with my team while we are work together to fight this virus and protect people from it. “
On April 6, he was transferred to the intensive care unit. Johnson received additional oxygen, but did not have to be ventilated, a Secretary of State of the Ministry of Health said.
After the first night in the hospital, Johnson had transferred government affairs to his Secretary of State Dominic Raab. At the same time, there are increasing questions in the UK as to how capable the UK government is at the moment.
A decision to continue measures against the spread of the pandemic should be announced next week, Dowden told the BBC. He believes it is unlikely that the restrictions will be relaxed because they have just started to take effect. The pandemic has therefore not yet reached its peak in Great Britain.
