The Prime Minister Boris Johnson has spent the night in intensive care after his coronavirus symptoms worsened and he suffered breathing difficulties.

The PM was taken to St Thomas Hospital on Sunday as a precautionary measure following the advice of his Doctor.

On Monday evening his health deteriorated and he was taken to the intensive care unit who treat the most seriously ill patients.

Boris had been given oxygen after he was struggling to breathe. It was decided at 7pm he’d be moved to the intensive care unit.

 a Number 10 spokesman said: “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 PM has asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is the first secretary of state, to deputise for him where necessary. The PM is receiving excellent care, and thanks all NHS staff for their hard work and dedication.”
