  • Boris Johnson responding to treatement in coronavirus battle

Prime Minister Boris Johnson began a third day in intensive care on Wednesday battling the coronavirus, which has struck at the heart of the British government, infected more than 55,000 people across the country and killed almost 6,200.

Johnson is now in intensive care at St Thomas' Hospital in London suffering from coronavirus. 10 Downing Street has held a live press conference every day for the past week. Officials added that he was still receiving standard oxygen treatment and was breathing without the assistance of a ventilator.

On Tuesday afternoon, Johnson's office released an update on his personal treatment and condition while he is under care of doctors at London's St. Thomas' Hospital: "He's been stable overnight and remains in good spirits".

It bridges the gap between an oxygen mask and full ventilation, but Prof Hill said many COVID-19 patients "progress to invasive ventilation", which is used for people who develop such a severe illness that they struggle to, or can not, breathe for themselves.

Inside the government, ministers were debating how long the world's fifth-largest economy could afford to be shut down, and the long-term implications of one of the most stringent set of emergency controls in peacetime history.

It came as the number of coronavirus hospital deaths in the United Kingdom rose to 6,159 on Tuesday - a record increase of 786 in a day, the Department of Health and Social Care said, compared with 439 on Monday.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said the city, which is the epicenter of Britain's outbreak, had one-quarter of its existing hospital beds still available, as well as the new Nightingale hospital.

No formal constitutional role for deputy PM Britain does not have a formal constitutional role of deputy prime minister, and experts said Raab would need the support of the rest of the cabinet to make any big decisions.

"Thank you for visiting Uganda twice sir even before you became Prime Minister!"

Before being hospitalized, Johnson deputized his foreign minister, Dominic Raab, to handle government affairs as needed.

Boris Johnson announced on March 27 that he had coronavirus and went into self-isolation. "Decision making by the government is made by collective Cabinet responsibilities, so that is the same as before", he said.

Mr Johnson had issued a three-week for it to be reviewed, but Mr Raab insisted the United Kingdom could not ease off just yet.

Downing Street also confirmed that the review into whether the coronavirus lockdown measures could be eased on Monday had been shelved.

"That is not just a medical judgment".

There are few precedents in British history of a prime minister being incapacitated at a time of major crisis, though Winston Churchill suffered a stroke while in office in 1953 and Tony Blair twice underwent heart treatment in the 2000s.

"He very often can steer the direction in a particular way".

Raab is now leading the country's response to the pandemic, but in other areas his authority is limited.
