British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s condition is improving and he is able to sit up in bed and engage with clinical staff, finance minister Rishi Sunak said on Wednesday as Johnson remained in intensive care battling COVID-19.Johnson was admitted to St Thomas’ hospital on Sunday evening with a persistent high temperature and cough and was transferred to intensive care on Monday.The 55-year-old British leader, who tested positive for the new coronavirus nearly two weeks ago, has received oxygen support but has not been put on a ventilator. Topics : “The latest from the hospital is that the prime minister remains in intensive care where his condition is improving,” Sunak said at a daily government coronavirus news conference.”I can also tell you that he has been sitting up in bed and been engaging positively with the clinical team.”Johnson’s designated deputy, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, said earlier the prime minister would soon be back at the helm.The United Kingdom’s total hospital deaths from COVID-19 has risen by a daily record of 938 to 7,097 as of 1600 GMT on April 7. But the number of new infections and hospital admissions in Britain was beginning to show signs of flattening, Stephen Powis, medical director of the National Health Service, told the news conference.While Johnson was out of action, the country was entering what scientists said was the deadliest phase of the outbreak and the government was grappling with the question of when to lift the lockdown.”We are beginning to see the benefits I believe but the really critical thing is that we have to continue following instructions – we have to continue following social distancing, because if we don’t the virus will start to spread again,” said Powis.In the latest of a raft of measures to rescue the economy and society from the worst effects of the crisis, Sunak announced an extra 750 million pounds ($930 million) of funding for charities so that they could continue their work.He also said Raab would chair a government emergency response meeting, known as Cobra, on Thursday to discuss how to deal with a review of lockdown measures in Johnson’s absence.”We committed that there would be a review in and around three weeks [from the start of the lockdown]. That review will be based on the evidence and the data provided by SAGE,” said Sunak, referring to the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies.
INDIANOLA —- Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris spent the Thanksgiving holiday in Iowa, including an event Sunday morning in Indianola that attracted about 60 people.“This is what I’m seeing all over the state, which is people who could be doing so many other things with their time coming out to have these conversations,” Harris said.She spoke later Sunday to about 60 people in Knoxville. And Harris dismissed the premise of a New York Times story which cited current and former campaign aides questioning the conduct of her campaign.“I am campaigning hard here in Iowa because I do see the enthusiasm,” Harris said. “When I’m in living rooms, when I am cooking with Iowan families, when I am spending time just walking through a coffee shop.”Harris says she’s lining up support from Iowans who are not necessarily on the radar as likely caucus-goers.
