Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said he feared Boris Johnson would die after contracting coronavirus


Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has announced that he feared Boris Johnson would die after the Conservative leader was hospitalized with coronavirus.

The Prime Minister was admitted to intensive care in April after his Covid-19 symptoms worsened while on treatment at St. Thomas Hospital in central London.

Mr. Raab represented the Prime Minister during his time in intensive care and during his subsequent recovery.

First Foreign Minister Tories has now told the Conservative Party at a virtual conference that he "fears we might lose him".

Speaking of how the virus "hit us hard and tragically killed" he said, "It almost cost the lives of our Prime Minister, our friend and our leader.

“I'm often asked how I felt when I was covering for him.

“Well, I was really worried we might lose him, and I was worried that Carrie (Symonds) was pregnant with baby Wilf.

"But I always had the confidence that with the excellent NHS support and fighting spirit he would prevail."

Mr Johnson himself confirmed that his life was in danger after his discharge from hospital on Easter Sunday and said in a video message that "it could have gone either way".

The 55-year-old said he owed indebtedness to the doctors and nurses who treated him and said, “I owe them my life. I cannot thank them enough. & # 39;

He has since been on a mission to shed the pounds and has expressed his belief that being overweight led to his close relationship with Covid.

In an interview with the Telegraph, the prime minister said he was now "thinner" after losing almost two stones.

"I try not to overeat sometimes and it's basically about exercising a lot and not eating that much," he told the newspaper.

& # 39; This is my top tip. Eat less, move more, weigh less. & # 39;

He also told the BBC that reports he was preparing to resign next year were "eerie disinformation".

Rumors circulated over the summer that the Prime Minister would not end a full term following claims made by Top Adjutant Dominic Cummings' father-in-law, Sir Humphry Wakefield, that he was struggling in the wake of his coronavirus battle.

Michael Gove said at the Tory Party conference that the Tory leader had "recovered remarkably" from his illness and described Mr. Johnson as "the liveliest wire in the room."

During his conference speech, Mr Raab admitted to praying that the country would "rise" to "the greatest challenge of a generation" as he followed in the prime minister's footsteps during the pandemic.

He admitted that there would be “lessons to be learned” from the government's handling of the crisis, adding, “I have to say, for every hurdle we faced, there was a story for every heartbreaking loss of courage, a moment of inspiration. & # 39;

Mr Gove and Mr Raab's comments come after the President of the United States Donald Trump confirmed that he tested positive for coronavirus this week.

Confusion over Donald Trump's condition erupted while battling coronavirus after the president's doctors said he was "very good" while a White House source said his vital signs were "very worrying".

Trump's personal doctor Sean Conley, along with several other members of the president's medical team, offered an update on his condition outside the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, on Saturday morning.

& # 39; The President is doing very well this morning. The team and I are very pleased with the progress the President has made. He's been free of fever for 24 hours and we're cautiously optimistic, ”Conley said.

Conley's account was far more upbeat than that of a White House source familiar with the president's health who spoke to a Bloomberg business reporter in the background immediately after the briefing ended.

& # 39; The President's vital signs for the past 24 hours have been very worrying and the next 48 hours will be critical to his upkeep. We are still not on a clear path to a full recovery, ”the source said. The Bloomberg reporter passed this account on to the press pool.

The briefing raised more questions than answers as Conley refused to say what temperature the president was when he had a fever, whether he had oxygen and when he last tested negative for COVID.

Conley told reporters the team was 72 hours after Trump's diagnosis. But that would test the presidential schedule positive on Wednesday morning.

Trump tweeted just before 1 a.m. on Friday that he had tested positive.

On Thursday, he flew to his golf club in Bedminister, New Jersey to hold a fundraiser with about 100 people.

“Just 72 hours after diagnosis, the first week of COVID on any given day from seven to ten is most important in determining the likely course of this disease. At this point, the team and I are extremely pleased with the progress that the President has made. He had a light cough on Thursday with a blocked nose and tiredness, all of which are getting better and better now, ”Conley said.

Dr. Shaun Dooley, an intensive care doctor, also spoke at the briefing, saying that Trump's heart, liver and kidney functions are being monitored and are currently in good shape.

"He's in an exceptionally good mood," Dooley said of the president. "As we finished our multidisciplinary round this morning, he left us the quote, 'I feel like I could get out of here today' and that was a very encouraging comment from the President."

Trump is currently undergoing a number of treatments, including a polyclonal antibody cocktail from Regeneron that is not available to the public, remdesivir – an Ebola drug that has already been shown to work against the virus – and vitamin D.

He also takes zinc, vitamin D, famotidine (the generic name for Pepcid AC), melatonin, and daily aspirin.

Tonight he tweeted: “Doctors, nurses and EVERYONE at GREAT Walter Reed Medical Center and others from equally incredible institutions that have joined them are AMAZING !!!

& # 39; Tremendous strides have been made in the fight against this plague over the past 6 months. With your help, I'm fine! & # 39;
