Realistically he will recover without any intervention, even for a fat pig in his 70's his chance of survival are extremely high. It's basically just another positive test! So what, who cares?
Realistically he'll benefit from the best treatment possible e.g. convalescent plasma therapy etc should something happen.

Despite Borises general incompetence it's a bit unfair to compare him to those two. He's very eager to bring in new restrictions and regularly wears a mask.
He wasn't until he almost died from the virus...

Not sure you can say that. He was in intensive care. All we can actually say is that he wasn’t put on a ventilator.

I think he's creating his own Fake News.

He will steal all the headlines with his Covid diagnosis and avoid any more debates. He will emerge in a few weeks time, having beaten it, possibly not being slowed down at all. Steal the limelight, derail the process..
I believe so too. It’s a very convenient distraction from his criminal tax fraud, his calls for moving the election and the whole voter fraud saga. He will exploit it for his “democratic hoax” story. And it will work.

And since he doesn’t seem to have any symptoms or at worst mild ones at this present time, despite being an overweight over-70 with a horrible diet who never exercises, there’s nothing for him to “pull through” or that would require any “best experts for his recovery”.

Totally normal, every winter when I get the flu I end up in the ICU "just to be cautious" and being delivered oxygen with a mask. Don't know why people make a fuzz about it.

I don't find it funny. Even if they were randomly chosen, "The staff" has the moral and legal obligation to do whatever is in their power to treat or cure him.

Presidents come and go, medical profession is neither political nor juridical.

Whatever the outcome, I would not like to be in Hick´s shoes.
Perhaps we will hear that he got suicided one fine day.

Thats what was reported, had he not been the PM he likely would have stayed on a normal ward.

Re: Trump and first lady test positive for coronavirus

...and the mandatory the stock market likes/dislikes: European markets lower as Trump tests positive for coronavirus https://www.cnbc.com/2020/10/02/euro...ronavirus.html

I know this kind of commentary is just as informative as the horoscope, but fun anyway.

We all require Oxygen, not only country leaders. If he was not hospitalised he could have died. A clear sign that the lungs are not working.

Just think of the people that do not have access to medical care.

It's a moot point as he has no symptoms.

He was in a normal ward and then got moved to intensive care. He is quite open about how serious it was and it is fairly well known that he still faces lasting issues from the virus.
