UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been admitted to an intensive care unit after his ‘persistent symptoms of coronavirus’ worsened on Monday, reported The Guardian.
The Guardian reports that the British foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, will run the country’s coronavirus response in Johnson’s absence.
Global infections stood at 1,347,803, with deaths at 74,807, as of 05.42GMT, according to the Johns Hopkins tracker.
Johnson can be cringeworthy, but that’s also part of his charm. His critics see him as a calculating self-aggrandizer who’d do or say anything to succeed. He’s generated controversy over racist, sexist, and Islamophobic statements he’s made.
