UK Prime Minister Boris Johnston is reported to be in stable condition Tuesday in ICU at St. Thomas’ Hospital across the River Thames from the House of Commons.
He was admitted there on Sunday but his condition rapidly deteriorated over the next 24 hours, and he was moved on Monday to an intensive care unit where he as been receiving oxygen support to help him battle COVID-19.
“He is receiving standard oxygen treatment and breathing without any other assistance,” Johnson’s spokesman told reporters.
“The prime minister has been stable overnight and remains in good spirits,” the spokesman said. “He has not required mechanical ventilation, or non-invasive respiratory support.”
