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.
