U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is listed as "stable" after spending the night in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at London's St. Thomas' Hospital as his coronavirus symptoms "worsened" and he went into respiratory distress.

On Sunday, April 5, Johnson was admitted to the National Health Service (NHS) hospital after battling COVID-19 for 10 days.

When he began suffering from respiratory distress on Monday, he was moved to the ICU and listed in serious condition.

Providing an update on his condition, a spokesperson said, "The Prime Minister has been stable overnight and remains in good spirits. He is receiving standard oxygen treatment and is breathing without any other assistance."

The spokesperson insisted Johnson did not require intubation or a ventilator to stabilize his breathing.

"He has not required mechanical ventilation or non-invasive respiratory support."

Typically, patients in respiratory distress are placed on a ventilator in ICU where the nurse-to-patient ratio is one-to-one or one-to-two.

The spokesperson denied reports that Johnson was diagnosed with a potentially fatal pneumonia caused by Covid-19.

But according to reports, Johnson was having difficulty breathing and his oxygen saturation levels were so low that he was moved to ICU in anticipation of being placed on a ventilator to support his breathing.

Johnson is the first world leader to be hospitalized with Covid-19.

Hospitals hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic are considering "do not resuscitate" orders to let the sickest patients die so others can live.

Hospitals are struggling with a lack of ICU beds and medical equipment shortages in the hardest hit areas such as New York and California.

Usually a DNR order is a personal decision between the patient's families and their doctors. But hospitals are considering DNR orders for coronavirus patients who are not likely to survive.

"First, do no harm" is the guiding principle for doctors who are tasked with saving lives at all costs. But hospital administrations are debating whether some patients should be removed from ventilators and allowed to die to free up the equipment for patients who have a better chance of survival.

Dr. Patrice Harris (right), president of the American Medical Association, told Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner the AMA's code of ethics provides guidance to hospitals and doctors about this difficult decision.

"That's the appropriate thing to do," Dr. Harris said. This shouldn't be an individual doctor's decision."

The CDC offers the following tips to avoid spreading the flu or Covid-19 virus:

1. Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds
2. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
3. Avoid close contact with sick people
4. Sneeze and cough into a tissue or your elbow
5. Stay home if you are sick
5. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
6. When in doubt consult with a healthcare professional
