During the daily press conference from Downing Street, Chancellor Rishi Sunak has said Prime Minister Boris Johnson remains in intensive care at St Thomas’ Hospital but is “improving” and has been sitting up in bed and engaging with his clinical team. The Prime Minister was transferred to the ICU on Monday evening after his coronavirus symptoms worsened.
What treatment is Boris Johnson receiving in ICU?
Boris Johnson is “responding to treatment” as he remains in a stable condition in the intensive care unit where he is being treated for coronavirus, Downing Street has said.
The Prime Minister continued to be in “good spirits” on Wednesday after spending his third night in St Thomas’s Hospital in London, his official spokesman said.
Mr Johnson was said to no longer be working while following the advice of doctors and receiving just the “standard oxygen treatment” and “breathing without any other assistance”.
