Dominic Raab Takes Charge As Prime Minister Boris Johnson Is Admitted

"You would normally expect him to get over it quicker but there are instances where people who are fit and healthy and not over the 70 isolation threshold who do struggle a bit - and we don't really know why."

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has admitted himself into hospital for further COVID-19 testing, leaving  Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab to head the crisis committee on Monday.

The Prime Minister decided to admit himself following advice from his doctor after suffering from a  high temperature on Sunday since his COVID-19 symptoms persisted since announcing that he had tested positive on March 27.

Boris Johnson admitted himself for precautionary measures and is expected to spend the night in the hospital as NHS staff monitor his symptoms.

The 55-year old prime minister drove himself to the hospital at 8pm on Sunday as the prolonged onset of the coronavirus symptoms raised concerned also taking into consideration his age as the older demographic of the population are more at risk from COVID-19.

Although Mr Johnson has been hospitalised, a government spokesman stated that he is “in charge of the government”.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab will only take over the C-19 (Coronavirus Committee) meeting on Monday, only fully taking over the Prime Minister’s duties should he become incapacitated.

Microbiologist from University of Reading Dr Simon Clarke explained to Sky News that there was no need for concern as it was common for some people to take longer to recover from the coronavirus as he went on to say:

“this happens to some people”.

“We have a seven-day quarantine period usually for people who have the virus, but only if you’re feeling better and some people may take a bit longer,”

“You would normally expect him to get over it quicker but there are instances where people who are fit and healthy and not over the 70 isolation threshold who do struggle a bit – and we don’t really know why.”

“It’s a bit like why we don’t understand why some people don’t get symptoms at all or don’t get infected at all”.
