Boris Johnson possible COVID-19

I've been avoiding the news because it was making me overly anxious. I was in for a shock when my sister texted me that the Prime Minister is in the ICU with oxygen support after showing some symptoms for the coronavirus. That feels so strange to me. I felt the same when Prince Charles fell ill, though it seems he's better and has reunited with his wife. I wonder if Boris Johnson regrets going with herd immunity as his first method for handling the outbreak? I hope he doesn't have it. I don't think it's been confirmed, just that he's showing symptoms. It feels surreal.

It can be depressing to be bombarded by one news item the whole time, but hopefully, the coronavirus will be behind us all soon. Our hopes and prayers are with Boris and everyone else showing symptoms, that they will pull through. Have you read about Trump offering experimental drugs for the British PM's treatment?

I hope he will be fine... well, everyone else too... I mean, all are lives. I think many, even the academia are still in shock that a virus can be that threatening to the society order, in a global scale.

I thought it was confirmed? They said he was doing better after his second night in the ICU. We don't even have a cure yet in the US. It surprises me that Trump would be giving drugs to anyone outside of the US, with so many Americans dying.

I was equally appalled by Trump's gesture, but our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who is battling this virus. Who would have thought that we would be dealing with such uncertainty regardless of how modern medicine has evolved. I remember reading about a tiger testing positive for the virus that causes COVID-19 at the Bronx Zoo.

I was just thinking this same thing! How in the heck are we dealing with something so crippling in 2020? With all the technology, medical included, how is this possible? It's disheartening! I agree that Trump should be giving this medicine to the thousands that are dying in NYC.

You're right there, Crompy. He got out of the hospital for days ago I think. I'm glad that he's gotten better. I'm surprised some of the world's worst dictators haven't been attacked by the virus in order to overthrow them. It seems like it would be easy to do.
