Coronavirus Update: UK prime minister remains 'clinically stable' in ICU

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson “remains clinically stable and is responding to treatment,” a spokesperson for his office said Wednesday.

“He continues to be cared for in intensive care at St Thomas’ Hospital,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “He is in good spirits.”

Johnson, 55, has been hospitalized at St Thomas’ Hospital in London since Sunday evening due to “persistent symptoms” of the novel coronavirus. He was transferred to the intensive care unit on Monday after his condition “worsened,” according to a statement from his official residence and office, 10 Downing Street.

The prime minister has been receiving “standard” oxygen treatment in the ICU and has been breathing without any other assistance.

“He has not required mechanical ventilation or non-invasive respiratory support,” Downing Street said.
