It appears that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's condition has worsened since we last reported on it. He tested positive for the coronavirus 10 days ago and on Sunday night he was admitted to the hospital with complications. On Monday, we learned that he has been moved to the ICU. He is still conscious and is not on a ventilator, Sky News reports.

It is understood that he remains conscious, and that the move is a precaution in case he requires a ventilator.

Johnson phoned Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab to take over for some responsibilities in his absence, such as security decisions and the UK's day-to-day coronavirus response.
"There's an incredibly strong team spirit behind the prime minister," Raab said in a press conference on Monday.
Johnson had tweeted earlier on Monday that he was in good spirits and thanked the NHS for their care.

I’d like to say thank you to all the brilliant NHS staff taking care of me and others in this difficult time. You are the best of Britain.— Boris Johnson #StayHomeSaveLives (@BorisJohnson) April 6, 2020
Stay safe everyone, and please remember to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.
