President Donald Trump said he has asked two therapeutics companies to ‘contact London immediately’ about assisting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s treatment
Johnson, who was diagnosed with coronavirus about 11 days ago was admitted into the ICU of St. Thomas Hospital as his health took a turn for the worse.
‘I want to send best wishes to a very good friend of mine, and a friend to our nation, Prime Minister Boris Johnson,’ Trump said.
‘We are very saddened to hear that he was taken into intensive care this afternoon a little while ago. And Americans are all praying for his recovery.
‘He has been a really good friend pretty something special. Very strong. Resolute, he does not quit. Does not give up.’
‘I have asked two of the leading companies – these are brilliant companies, they have come up with solutions and just have done incredible jobs – I have asked them to contact London immediately.
‘They speak a language that most people do not even understand – but I understand something that they have really advanced there, therapeutically, and that they have arrived in London already.
‘The London office has whatever they need. And we will see if we can be of help. We have contacted all of Boris’ doctors, and we will see what is going to take place. But they are ready to go.
Trump added: ‘But when you get brought into intensive care, that gets very, very serious with this particular disease.
‘So, the two companies are there. And with what they are talking about, and it is rather complex, and has had really incredible results.
‘We are working with the FDA and everybody else, but we are working with London with respect to Boris Johnson.’—Daily Mail
