Boris Johnson Hospitalized Pregnant Fiancée Also Has Symptoms Of Covid 19


On Sunday, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson was hospitalized because of his coronavirus symptoms, according to CNN. "On the advice of his doctor, the Prime Minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests" because of lingering symptoms, the Prime Minister's Office said. The 55-year-old Johnson announced he had COVID-19 on March 27 and has been working from home. Johnson said he was experiencing a fever and cough. Hospital tests could include a CT scan or bloodwork. A blood oxygen test, for instance, could reveal "several more variables of lung function and might indicate whether he is just fatigued and spent, or actually in some danger," according to a medical analyst. On Saturday night, Johnson's pregnant fiancee, 32-year-old Carrie Symonds, admitted that she too has been battling coronavirus symptoms in another London location where she has been self-isolating. "I've spent the past week in bed with the main symptoms of Coronavirus. I haven't needed to be tested and, after seven days of rest, I feel stronger and I'm on the mend," she tweeted.
