UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has revealed that he needed “litres and litres” of oxygen to keep him alive at the hospital while he battled with COVID-19.

According to him, he was wired up to monitors and kept asking himself if he will ever survive when he saw the indicators on the monitor going the wrong direction.

“Indicators kept going in the wrong direction. It was a tough moment, I won’t deny it. How am I going to get out of this?” he disclosed.

“It was hard to believe that in just a few days my health had deteriorated to this extent. The doctors had all sorts of arrangements for what to do if things went badly wrong,” he said in an interview.

Boris Johnson was diagnosed with COVID-19 on March 26, 2020, and was admitted to hospital 10 days later. The following day, he was moved to the intensive care unit.

Commenting on his recovery and how he was treated by the frontline health workers, the UK Prime Minister said it was “wonderful, wonderful nursing.”

According to him, he felt lucky adding that “And so if you ask me, am I driven by a desire to stop other people suffering? Yes, I absolutely am.”

“But I am also driven by an overwhelming desire to get our country as a whole back on its feet, healthy again, going forward in a way that we can and I’m very confident we’ll get there,” he added.

Boris Johnson’s fiancée, Carrie Symonds gave birth recently to a boy and named the baby Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson.

The couple says the names are a tribute to their grandfathers and two doctors who treated the Prime Minister while he was on admission at the hospital.

The total number of reported coronavirus-related deaths in the UK now stands at 28,131. Total confirmed cases recorded are 182,260.
