After being hospitalized on Sunday with a deadly COVID-19, PM Boris Johnson has been moved today 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.

According to the spokesman, Johnson's condition "has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved into the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital."

This is a fast-moving situation and the ventilator is placed in his hospital room should he need assistance breathing.

PM's condition with COVID19 escalated and is serious. Johnson may require intubation but a Senior government source says that PM Johnson is conscious and is not on a ventilator yet. He has been given oxygen before he has been taken into ICU.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab will be in charge of PM's tasks until Johnson recovers, hopefully soon. Raab has formally taken over, per a phone request made officially by PM Boris Johnson while he was still conscious.   

"The PM has asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is the First Secretary of State, to deputise for him where necessary", the Downing Street's spokesperson confirmed. 

After Johnson was moved to intensive care tonight, Dominic Raab said that the Prime Minister is getting excellent care. "The government business will continue and the Prime Minister is in safe hands", Raab offered reassurance to the British people. 

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.
