On Twitter, the hashtag Clap For Boris is trending in the UK. The public is being encouraged to clap for the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson tonight at 8 pm, as he was moved to intensive care due to his COVID-19 symptoms worsening.
A spokesman for Downing Street said: “Since Sunday evening, the Prime Minister has been under the care of doctors at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, after being admitted with persistent symptoms of coronavirus.”
He also said: “Over the course of this afternoon, the condition of the Prime Minister has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved to the intensive care unit at the hospital.
Lastly, he added: “The PM has asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is the First Secretary of State, to deputise for him where necessary. The PM is receiving excellent care, and thanks to all NHS staff for their hard work and dedication.”
A photo making rounds on twitter says: “He’s clapped for the NHS, He’s supported the UK, He’s trying to save us, Why don’t we support him Tuesday 7th, 8 pm cheer and clap for Boris.”
