Boris Admitted to Hospital

You don't put the prime minister into hospital for 'precautionary reasons' in the middle of a battle. The poor chap is probably quite ill.
Best wishes.

Boris Johnson Admitted to Hospital


Boris Johnson has been admitted to hospital with coronavirus after suffering persistent symptoms for 10 days.

Downing Street insisted it was just a precautionary measure but Johnson’s admission on a Sunday evening comes after days of rumours that his condition has been worsening.

Maybe he should take it on the chin and develop herd immunity.

Indeed, I'm not a fan of B.J. but I wish him a speedy recovery.

Maybe he did learn something....?

I don't like any professional politicians, and the best I can say about him is that he's the best, or more accurately the least worst, of whats available. Perhaps he gave Preti a sloppy kiss at the last cabinet meeting, and gave Gove and Mogg a manly hug too....

As the Diamond Princess fiasco unfolded, a workable pattern began to emerge which is now being called the Kanagawa Model in Japan. Watching an explanation in Japanese, I got this kind of picture from it.

Each patient testing positive off the ship was sent to one of three places.
a) Those in acute distress were sent straight to a hospital with a dedicated ICU, Ecmo, etc.
b) Those showing medium symptoms were sent to a specialized but more general hospital for very close monitoring.
c)Those showing no symptoms went into quarantine, being either sent home or to a hotel set aside for the purpose.

The bulk of patients ended up in b) for close monitoring, but any following changes in condition meant that they were swiftly moved to either c), or in severe cases up to a).

I think what they were saying was that they were better able (under their hospital system) to process their 'overshoot', i.e. the mass of people concentrated in b).

I wonder what the thinking was behind him staying as PM this last week when he should have been sleeping/resting under medical supervision (by dint of his position) and one or more of his inner circle acting as temporary PM in the interim ?

The stress and pressure he has been under, including worrying about his pregnant partner who is coronavirus positive presentl,y will have severely curtailed his body's ability to heal from the effects of the virus.

I wish him a speedy recovery all the same.

I think after 2 weeks he wasn't showing any signs of improvement. That's NOT a good thing in a guy in his mid-50's who hasn't had the healthiest life style. There was a graphic in the Times on Saturday - after 2 weeks it looks as if you may well be sent to hospital almost as standard if you're still bad.

Let's face it. Boris has worked desperately hard to get to his long dreamed position, regardless of the consequences for the country. He is not going to relinquish power unless he is a death's door.
And I don't wish that on him, particularly as none of the possible replacements is capable of being prime minister of the country in its present state.

Not a fan personally but Gove is more capable if a trifle Machiavellian for most tastes. Jezza Hunt would make a better PM too. Bet Boris features in The Govester's prayers at night, but not in a good way.

If things went badly, which whatever your politics, you would hope would not be the case, perhaps bringing Mrs Strong and Stable back might not be a bad move, on a temporary basis. At least she has experience of the top job. Don't like the idea of Raab getting his paws on the job.

Which due to cutbacks will be administered by the building caretaker using a bit of drainpipe that fell off the wall and a pressure washer

He is said to be "assisted with breathing oxygen". But working (?).

Better not light his farts then.... Sorry not funny, no one deserves to suffer this and I personally think he has been doing a marvellous job considering he is new in post and suddenly had all this dumped in his lap...

Anyone suffering has my sympathy. Perhaps not fully following his own advice.
I agree there are no ready made replacement PM available, but for being available to the media and not getting overworked up I would suggest Hunt. At least he has experience the issue and recovered
However it should be the experts deciding what to do not politicians
How is Chris Whitty doing?

Update in the Guardian from this mornings No10 press briefing.

”Boris Johnson remains in St Thomas’ hospital “for observation”, with No 10 saying he had a “comfortable night” and is “in good spirits”. Downing Street is not denying that the prime minister received oxygen treatment last night.

Officials are refusing to give any further update on his condition. When asked if he had pneumonia, the spokesman said any change in his condition would be made public.

No 10 is no longer describing Johnson’s symptoms as “mild”, but confirmed he has a temperature and a cough.“.......
