The President of the United States, Donald Trump, offered this Monday, April 6, aid to the United Kingdom for the treatment of his Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, hospitalized in intensive care due to covid-19.
“I have asked two of the leading (US therapeutic) companies, brilliant companies, to do a great job. I have asked them to contact London immediately,” Trump explained during his daily press conference on the coronavirus.
“We are going to see if we can be of help,” he added. “We have contacted Boris’ doctors, and we are going to see what happens, but (the companies) are ready to go (to London).”RELATED
Trump did not elaborate, but said it is “a very complex treatment of the things they have just developed.”
The American leader, in addition, regretted the situation of Johnson and said that “once they take you to intensive care, it is something very, very serious, with this virus.”
Johnson was transferred to the intensive care unit on the afternoon of this Monday, April 6, 2020, as his health worsened due to the coronavirus picture he presents.
The 55-year-old British Prime Minister tested positive for covid-19 11 days ago and was admitted Sunday night to London’s Saint Thomas hospital for “persistent” symptoms.
“During this afternoon, the Prime Minister’s condition has worsened and, under the recommendations of his medical team, he has been admitted to the hospital’s intensive care unit,” his spokesman said in a statement.
Downing Street stressed that Johnson is aware and has asked Foreign Minister Dominic Raab to exercise his functions when necessary.
