Despite how scary that sound, the statement assured citizens and the world at large that “the PM is receiving excellent care” at the hands of the medical staff.

It also mentioned that in a situation where Johnson won’t be able to disburse his duties as prime minister, the first secretary of state, Dominic Raab, would stand in for him.

The Guardian recalls that Boris tested positive for Coronavirus 10 days ago after experiencing mild symptoms.
