Having tried positive for COVID-19 on March 27, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has now been hospitalized because of continuous side effects. In an announcement distributed by Downing Street on Sunday (April 5), the Prime Minister’s Office affirmed that Johnson had been admitted to emergency clinic for tests as a “prudent advance.”
“On the counsel of his primary care physician, the Prime Minister has today around evening time been admitted to emergency clinic for tests,” a Downing Street representative said. “This is a prudent advance, as the leader keeps on having industrious indications of coronavirus 10 days in the wake of testing positive for the infection.” They included:
“The Prime Minister expresses gratitude toward NHS staff for the entirety of their unimaginable difficult work and desires general society to keep on following the administration’s recommendation to remain at home, secure the NHS and spares lives.”
Per BBC News, Johnson “stays accountable for government,” yet remote secretary Dominic Raab “is required to seat a coronavirus meeting” toward the beginning of today (April 6). This is because of one of Raab’s jobs as outside secretary, which likewise considers him to be the “Leader’s accepted agent,” as the Guardian composes.
Because of social removing measures, this gathering will probably not be occurring in Downing Street. “I would anticipate that now and for years to come a critical number of Cabinet pastors will partake by dialing in or by means of video conferencing,” a representative for Johnson stated, per the Evening Standard, on March 23.
