News is that Boris has been put into Intensive Care as his health has worsened enough to warrant such a move.

It has been reported that Boris' live in pregnant fiancee is also confirmed as Corona virus infected.
It looks as if 10 Downing str staff could well be infected with the virus.

Naturally family is concerned.


Kiks, all is not lost, have faith. First he needs testing for the corona virus and depending on the outcome, they can act accordingly.

I myself have been in hospital for the last 8 days with confirmed corona virus, I am home now recovering and isolated for another 14 days.

Different people respond differently to this. It is not just like the flu, we have all had the flu at some time or other, but never once thought we might die from this. This virus is f scary and just hope you don't get it.

The weakness is part and parcel of being ill, I am experiencing it at present, but I know I need time to fully recover and get my strength back. Fortunately for me I didn't need a ventilator, I was using oxygen for the first few days.

There is always going to be concerns when some gets that sick and at that age. Hang on in there, hopefully it'll all come well in the end.


gee I'm glad all is well with you and you are on the road to recovery.

Can you describe what symptoms you had and how it made you feel? What was the scary part? Was it difficult to breathe?


Each persons experience is different, in my case it all seemed to start when I had a small accident on my moped, I hurt my side. Since then, my insides were feeling nauseous constantly, I was home 2 weeks unable to eat, sleep and couldn't get over this nauseating feeling. I didn't have any of the symptoms they claim, temperature, sore throat, head ache, although looking back now I did have a cough, albeit not a dry cough, by bringing up phlegm (sorry).

I then couldn't cope any long, went to the hospital for another X-ray and to speak to a doctor. From there, the X-ray should something in my lungs, the doctor took a blood sample and I had it tested in the adjacent lab. It came back positive for the virus. But blood is on 97% proof, they then sent me to the hospital for the throat and nasal test (a horrible experience), and they decided to keep me in after a lot of waiting around. The result came back positive and I was a confirmed case. I had to use the oxygen to assist my breathing, my room mate didn't need it. He had other underlying health issues and fortunately he was ok and we had left together.

I went in on Friday, by Sunday evening I was asleep and when I woke they had brought in another patient. I turns out he was a very good friend of mine :) by pure change, in his case he did have the necessary symptoms before he was confirmed and they brought him into hospital.

That sums up my experience, I am now home getting over this, I am to be retested next week to see if I have cleared.


Sounds like you are doing well now recovering.

What is scary about this virus is the difficulty in breathing...
