The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been admitted to intensive care with those persistent symptoms of coronavirus so just breaking news coming into us within the past few seconds the Prime Minister has been under the care of doctors in a hospital in London and he is being now admitted into intensive care with those persistent symptoms of coronavirus he has been in hospital since Sunday evening we were expecting him to say stay in the hospital for a second night in this hospital st. Thomas’s Hospital but we heard earlier on from his tweet that he was doing well and we heard also from Dominic Robb earlier on that he was in still very much in charge of what was happening now Laura Kunz Berg our political editor joins me live on the line now Laura a very worrying development now about the British prime minister hello castle yes just in the last few minutes it’s been and we’ve had an official statement from Downing Street after very very little information through the day that at around 7 o’clock tonight as I understand that the Prime Minister was taken to intensive care the statement makes clear that he had you know is he’s receiving excellent care and he wants to thank all the people at the NHS but something

UK's Johnson moved to intensive care as his condition worsens - CGTN

important has changed and that he’s now in intensive care rather than being looked for I looked after by medics and he’s felt it necessary to ask the Foreign Secretary Dominick Robb to deputize for him where needs be now that’s a completely different message to what we’ve had in the last sort of 18 hours or so where it was continually the Prime Minister’s in touch he’s still in charge everything is sort of bored with almost it’s business as usual clearly now the Prime Minister being intensive care changes everything his condition as I understand it worsened over the course of this afternoon he’s still conscious we’re told but he’s been moved to intensive care as a precaution in case he requires ventilation as necessary to get through the filner really difficult news to hear Laura we heard your question actually earlier on during that daily press briefing and you asked whether if the Prime Minister whether if he was not well enough to come out of hospital was he well enough to govern the country as you were saying the government very much saying that he was in charge of course that is absolutely it cannot be sustainable at this with this latest development well that’s right and the as I say with those sort of very sporadic small bits of information that we had through the day it seems some of the somewhat of a better vacuums to be honest talking to people in government who would normally be quite forthcoming about what was going on was very very rigid script just that he was in good spirits and he was working and you know we’re sort of cracking on as best he could be and he was said to be in good spirits and that changed very dramatically in the last at ten minutes but also for something slightly more puzzling whereas at the press conference earlier this afternoon the foreign secretary said he had spoken to the prime minister from Saturday now that seems strange that seems rather odd given that Dominic Robb was meant to be taking charge the Prime Minister and the Prime Minister’s continually in touch clearly at that point the situation was already getting worse and as we then laterally discovered just at just after 8 o’clock the Prime Minister has in fact been moved to intensive care now we know that from a spokesperson from number 10 that the Prime Minister is receiving excellent care and they want to pass on their thanks to all the NHS staff for their hard work and their dedication and as you were saying he’s been in st. Thomas’s Hospital in London since Sunday evening of course it’s very difficult difficult situation giving the seriousness of coronavirus itself but in terms of the detail of his condition we we just simply don’t know last night about about 24 hours ago that he had he was just having routine tests and I but we’ve struggled to get dentistry to tell us through the day what those tests were for you know it’s been more than 10 days 11 days that he’s had persistence and with Colonel Harrison high-temperature and a persistent call all we know at the moment is that his condition worsened over the course of this afternoon therefore this decision has been made as a precaution to him being in intensive care tonight so clearly very serious situation for the prime minister’s an extreme emphasizes this bill is a precaution but it’s a huge moment I mean when you take it’s a spittle last night that was obviously a real milestone and that this the way this whole crisis has unfolded and you know so many people who weren’t right in the heart of government has been hit by this but to have the Prime Minister in intensive care at a time when the country is trying to respond to an emergency the government is trying to get through an emergency for the nation’s health and the economy it really is a worrying development.
