UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been shifted to intensive care unit after his coronavirus symptoms worsened, reported BBC. He was admitted to St Thomas' Hospital on Sunday, 10 days after testing positive for coronavirus, as he showed persistent symptoms of the respiratory infection.
"On the advice of his doctor, the Prime Minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests. This is a precautionary step, as the Prime Minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus ten days after testing positive for the virus," a Downing Street spokesperson had said.
