British Prime Minister Boris Johnson remains in a stable condition in hospital, according to junior health minister Edward Argar.
Asked on Sky News about Johnson’s situation, Argar replied: “I understand the Prime Minister is in a stable condition. He’s comfortable and in good spirits. He has — in the past — had some oxygen but he’s not on ventilation.
“I am not going to comment beyond what’s been said.”
Johnson is in hospital being treated for coronavirus.
It’s unclear when Argar was last briefed on the Prime Minister’s condition. On Tuesday, Cabinet Minister Michael Gove acknowledged fellow ministers were taken by surprise when they found out Johnson had been taken into intensive care.
On Tuesday, the Prime Minister’s spokesperson said Johnson is receiving “standard oxygen treatment” and is breathing without assistance, a day after he was transferred to intensive care.
