Barely twenty-four hours after news broke that UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson was in ‘good spirits,’ news coming in indicates that he has been moved to the Intensive Care Unit after his COVID-19 condition worsened.

In a Facebook post on Monday morning, Mr. Johnson said he was taken to the hospital on the advice of his doctor for routine tests as he was exhibiting symptoms consistent with COVID-19. He also said that he was working together with his team in fighting the pandemic as he receives briefings and updates while on admission.

“Last night, on the advice of my doctor, I went into the hospital for some routine tests as I’m still experiencing coronavirus symptoms. I’m in good spirits and keeping in touch with my team, as we work together to fight this virus and keep everyone safe.”

But a statement from Downing Street said Mr. Johnson was moved on the advice of his medical team and is receiving “excellent care.”

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has been asked to deputise for the Prime Minister “where necessary.”

“Since Sunday evening, the prime minister has been under the care of doctors at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, after being admitted with persistent symptoms of coronavirus.”

“Over the course of this afternoon, the condition of the prime minister has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved to the intensive care unit at the hospital,” the statement read.
