Boris Johnson hospitalised, Prime Minister Mark Rutte wishes him well on Twitter

Yesterday, the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was admitted to intensive care after suffering from severe symptoms of coronavirus. Well-wishers, including the Dutch Prime Minister, Mark Rutte, took to Twitter to share some kind words.

55-year old Johnson, was admitted to St. Thomas’s Hospital in London after pervasive symptoms that did not decrease during his home isolation in London. As of now his situation has not significantly improved, reports.

Yesterday evening, Mark Rutte tweeted, “on behalf of the Dutch cabinet, I wish @Boris Johnson and the British people strength during this time. I hope to speak to him soon in good health.”

We too, wish Johnson, the  rest of the UK and other parts of the world all the best during this difficult time.
