LONDON: Culture secretary Oliver Dowden has said that the health condition of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is slowly improving.
Boris Johnson had spent the fourth night in an intensive care unit (ICU) in a London hospital as he was tested coronavirus positive although his condition is said to be improving. Johnson’s persistently high temperature had fallen.
In a statement, Oliver Dowden said, “Prime Minister’s health condition is stable, and improving. He assured me that things are getting better for him,” he added.
The 55-year-old had been isolating himself after showing symptoms of COVID-19 earlier in March. The country is in lockdown for over three weeks as a measure to curb the spread of COVID-19 that has infected more than 60,733 people across the country and killed nearly 7,097.
