Laura Kuenssberg puts Dominic Raab on spot over Boris Johnson health | UK | News

10 days after testing positive for coronavirus, Downing Street has confirmed that the Prime Minister has now been admitted to hospital.

During the daily briefing, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab made assurances that Boris Johnson was only admitted as a “precaution” and would still be carrying out his leadership role.

However, BBC Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg voiced concern over whether Mr Johnson was “well enough” to tackle the “national emergency”.

She asked: “If the Prime Minister is ill enough to need to be in hospital, how can he be well enough to run the country at a time of national emergency?

“Wouldn’t it be better if he stepped back, even briefly, in order to recover?”

Mr Raab defended the decision: “On the PM, he was admitted to hospital for tests as a precaution only.

“That was because some of the symptoms that he had when he first tested positive had persisted.”
