EYEAFRICA TV: London, United Kingdom: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson remains in stable condition after being moved to intensive care, said Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab on Tuesday.
Raab said at a press conference that Johnson is still in the intensive care unit, but is currently in stable health condition. He is receiving conventional oxygen therapy, without using a ventilator or non-invasive respiratory support.
Raab made a promise to Johnson and to the British people that the Downing Street office will not flinch at this critical moment. They will stay strong in carrying out the government’s plan to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Johnson tested positive for COVID-19 on March 27 and he then began self-isolation at home. His Downing Street office said in a statement on Sunday that his condition did not improve after ten days and that he is still suffering from a persistent coughing and fever.
He was moved to intensive care on Monday afternoon, after his symptoms worsened.
