UNITED KINGDOM — (04-05-20) — UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was rushed to the hospital on Sunday as a precautionary step. The announcement has sent shock waves throughout the UK as it was last week when the prime minister announced that he had tested positive for the coronavirus and was in quarantine.

Now Johnson has been admitted to the hospital in what his office says was a “precautionary step” given his systems becoming more serious.

The BBC Reported…The Prime Minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus”, a spokeswoman said – including a high temperature… “On the advice of his doctor, the prime minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests,” the spokeswoman said. “This is a precautionary step, as the prime minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus ten days after testing positive for the virus.””

The announcement comes in the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s address to the nation earlier today.

Downing Street officials are adamant Mr Johnson remains in charge of the government and is in contact with ministerial colleagues and civil servants. But the undeniable reality is there is nothing conventional, nothing normal about this. The coronavirus has repeatedly proven its capacity to reach world leaders who are normally protected from such contagens.

Advisers, officials and ministerial colleagues have all been forced to self-isolate in the United Kingdom.

Dr Sarah Jarvis, a GP and broadcaster said that Boris Johnson would have to have his chest X-rayed and his lungs scanned, particularly if he is struggling for breath. She said he is also likely to go through an electrocardiogram to check his heart’s function, as well as tests on his oxygen levels, white blood cell count, and liver and kidney function before he is released from hospital.

Prime Minster Johnson has worked from Downing Street since it was announced that he had tested positive for coronavirus on March 27.

He was last seen (above), in public applauding the NHS and other key workers from his flat in Downing Street on Thursday evening, and chaired a coronavirus meeting remotely on Friday morning.

We wish the prime minister and his family good wishes and hope for a quick recovery.
