Officials of UK’s government House have dismissed claims stating that the Prime minister, Boris Johnson, was in critical condition and required oxygen treatment.
The PM’s Spokesperson who refuted the claims said: “I don’t know the origins of those reports.” adding that Mr Johnson was “in good spirits” and was “comfortable” enough to remain in charge of government.
The reply was amidst pressure, from a UK government minister, asking Boris to rest and hand over power temporarily to the Secretary of State, Dominic Raab, if necessary.
According to the Spokesperson, Mr Johnson, who was admitted into the hospital on Sunday for what Downing Street calls “precautionary tests”, 10 days after he tested positive to Covid-19 said:
“The Prime Minister had a comfortable night at St Thomas’ Hospital in London and is in good spirits. He remains in hospital under observation.”
