UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is now ‘sitting up in bed’ and ‘improving’ according to UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
Johnson was admitted to hospital on Sunday barely two weeks after testing positive for Coronavirus and on Monday was transfered to the Intensive Care Unit and placed on oxygen as his condition worsened.
But information coming out of Downing street, says the UK leader is getting better as he continues to receive treatment even though he is still being treated in the ICU.
Speaking at Downing Street’s daily coronavirus briefing on Wednesday, UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak said the prime minister was recovering.
“The latest from the hospital is the prime minister remains in intensive care where his condition is improving,” the chancellor said.
“I can also tell you that he has been sitting up in bed and engaging positively with the clinical team.
“The prime minister is not only my colleague and my boss but also my friend, and my thoughts are with him and his family.”
‘His situation reminds us how indiscriminate this disease is”.
