“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,” said a statement from a Downing Street spokesman.

Johnson announced on March 27 that he had contracted the disease and began self-isolating, working via video conference. Ten days later, as symptoms persisted, including a fever, he went to the hospital.
