Boris Johnson has been admitted to an intensive care unit at a London hospital following Johnson admission to hospital yesterday after testing positive for COVID-19 over a week earlier. No. 10 confirmed Johnson is still conscious and this is a precautionary measure in case Johnson requires ventilation.
Prime Minister Johnson has been leading the UK response to the COVID-19 pandemic which has infected over 1.3 million people and killed over 73 thousand people worldwide. A No. 10 spokesman has confirmed that Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab will deputise for Boris Johnson where necessary.
