Boris Johnson was taken into intensive care on Monday night
Daily Mirror Political Editor Pippa Crerar tweeted: "New fact: Boris Johnson’s persistently high temperature has fallen. Good news." She had also retweeted a picture of The Times’ front page from today, which said: “Mr Johnson’s condition was described as stable and he was in good spirits, according to an update from St Thomas’ Hospital at 7pm yesterday. “The Times also understands that his persistently high temperature has also fallen.”
Mr Johnson, 55, was admitted to St Thomas’ Hospital, across the River Thames from parliament, late on Sunday after suffering symptoms including a fever and a cough for more than 10 days.
His condition deteriorated, and he was moved on Monday to an intensive care unit in case he needed to be put on a ventilator.
In an update on Tuesday evening, his Downing Street office said he would remain there for close monitoring and no further update was expected before Wednesday.
Queen Elizabeth wished Johnson a full and speedy recovery and sent a message of support to his pregnant fiancée, Carrie Symonds, and his family, echoing warm words from the likes of US President Trump and other world leaders.
