LONDON: Prime Minister Boris Johnson is “in good spirits” after spending the night in intensive care being treated for coronavirus, No 10 has said.
Mr Johnson, 55, was stable overnight, is being given oxygen and is not on a ventilator, a spokesman added.
The Queen has sent a message to Mr Johnson’s family and pregnant partner, saying they are in her thoughts.
It comes as Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove became the latest politician to self-isolate.
Mr Gove said he did not have symptoms but a family member did. He is continuing to work at home.
Mr Johnson was admitted to St Thomas’ Hospital in central London with “persistent symptoms” of Covid-19 on Sunday and was moved to intensive care on Monday at 19:00 BST after his symptoms worsened.
