Dominic Raab, Britain’s foreign minister, will continue to lead the country while Johnson is still feeling sick, per NBC.
The Prime Minister was originally admitted to St. Thomas’ Hospital in London Sunday evening after experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
Officials reported to The Guardian that “this was not an emergency admission, and that Johnson would remain in charge of the government.”
On Monday, the Prime Minister’s medical team suggested he move into intensive care after his symptoms worsened. (RELATED: UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson Moved To Intensive Care Due To Coronavirus Symptoms)
