It is quite possible his doctors are screwing this up. Just put him on ECMO now and consider avoiding steroidal anti-inflamatories. He is a head of state and such measures, whether we love his politics or not, is not a ‘betrayal.’
After ten days of being diagnosed with coronavirus Boris Johnson was moved into intensive care at Saint Thomas’ Hospital today after his admittance last night. He is not on a ventilator at this time. His covid symptoms are a continued fever and coughing.
British news is stating that he is still in control of the government, a strange statement to make. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has been designated to take over if Johnson is not able to feasibly able to maintain control should he require ventilation. He continues to get written briefings at this time.
Johnson’s pregnant fiancee, Carrie Symonds, is also recovering from the virus. Johnson, not too long ago, was ignoring safety precautions, continuing to shake hands with everybody he normally would.
We of course cannot say who infected him, or if he had infected his wife and baby but many feel he did not set a good example for the country.
