President Nana Addo Dankwa -Akufo Addo has, in a tweet, wished British Prime Minister Boris Johnson well as he battles with the novel coronavirus in a London hospital.



“Wishing British Prime Minister, @BorisJohnson, a speedy recovery and God’s blessings. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and the British people at this critical time,” President Akufo-Addo tweeted.

Boris Johnson has been moved to intensive care in hospital after his coronavirus symptoms “worsened”, Downing Street has said.

A spokesman said he was moved on the advice of his medical team and is receiving “excellent care”.

Mr Johnson has asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab to deputise “where necessary”, the spokesman added.

The Prime Minister, 55, was admitted to hospital in London with “persistent symptoms” on Sunday.

A No 10 statement read: “Since Sunday evening, the prime minister has been under the care of doctors at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, after being admitted with persistent symptoms of coronavirus.

“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.”

The statement added: “The PM is receiving excellent care, and thanks all NHS staff for their hard work and dedication.”
