On March 27, UK Prime Minster Boris Johnson revealed to the world that he had tested positive for COVID-19. Ten days later, his symptoms appear to have lingered, and BBC now reports that he has been hospitalized.
Johnson had been actively working in quarantine since his diagnosis. His wife-to-be, Carrie Symonds, has also remained quarantined in bed for the past week. 32-year-old Symonds is currently pregnant.
A Mirror report states that aides say Johnson had been ‘coughing and sputtering’ during recent videoconference calls, and that he’s had a rather persistent fever that hasn’t gone away.
This is said to be a “precautionary step” that his doctor advised, but it’s safe to assume that the world will anxiously await more information. We’ll post further updates learn more.
In Johnson’s absence, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab will assume any duties that Prime Minister Johnson is unable to perform.
