Boris Johnson improving
UK PM Boris Johnson's health continues to improve according to Downing Street. He remains in "good spirits" as he has throughout his hospitalisation for Covid-19. Johnson is receiving oxygen in the intensive care unit at St Thomas' Hospital in London.
He was taken there on Sunday, 10 days after testing positive, and was moved to intensive care on Monday. On 3 March, prior to testing positive, Johnson had vowed the coronavirus would not stop him shaking hands, insisting he had even shaken hands with everyone at a hospital where infected patients were being treated.
Yesterday the chancellor, Rishi Sunak, said Johnson's condition was improving, “He has been sitting up in bed and engaging with the clinical team”.
Boris Johnson has now spent three nights in intensive care after his condition with Covid-19 worsened.

UK lockdown set to continue
The UK lockdown will be reviewed next week, but it is expected that the lockdown will be extended as the country attempts to get on top of the coronavirus crisis.
Dominic Raab, standing in for the Prime Minister while he is in hospital said this afternoon that "The measures will have to stay in place until the evidence shows we have moved beyond the peak" and he urged people to stay at home "for everyone's sake" this bank holiday weekend.
Current restrictions oblige the public to stay at home unless they are shopping for basic necessities (such as food or medicine), exercising (limited to once a day), seeking medical assistance or to avoid injury, illness or escape the risk of harm, providing care or assistance to a vulnerable person, providing emergency assistance or donating blood, travelling to work or to carry out voluntary services where these cannot be carried out from home.
