► PM Boris Johnson has not been diagnosed with pneumonia and is not on a ventilator, Downing Street confirms.

According to the latest news from Downing Street, Boris Johnson's condition is stable and he has been receiving oxygen treatment.

After the night in intensive care, Johnson remains in good spirits and still does not require a ventilator. 

On early Tuesday morning, talking to BBC Breakfast, Britain's popular radio show, Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove said that Prime Minister Boris Johnson is receiving the "very, very best care from the team in St Thomas’".

"The prime minister's not on a ventilator. He has received oxygen support," Gove said.

He added: “The prime minister loves this country, he is someone who always wants to be doing his best, driving things forward, making a difference for the better. We all hope he can be restored to health as quickly as possible.”

The U.S. President Donald Trump said yesterday that he has been in contact with all of Johnson's doctors to see if America can help his "very good friend". 

Yesterday, Johnson has been moved into the intensive care unit at St Thomas' Hospital in London at 7 pm local time. St Thomas' Hospital has a very good department for infectious diseases and has been at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab will be in charge of PM's tasks until Johnson recovers. Raab has formally taken over, per a phone request made officially by PM Boris Johnson before he was moved into intensive care.   

Dominic Raab said that "the government business will continue and the Prime Minister is in safe hands". 

Johnson's partner Carrie Symonds is seven months pregnant and she disclosed on Saturday that she has been also infected with the coronavirus

 "I pray Boris Johnson gets through this and makes a full recovery. Our country needs him. In the meantime, Dominic Raab and the rest of the cabinet need to step up to the plate and continue the fight against Coronavirus," MP Andrew Bridgen said for The Pavlovic Today.

World leaders have sent messages to PM Johnson wishing him well.
