Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan has come out in support of recently hospitalized British Prime Minister Boris Johnson after many Twitter users postes messages about wanting Johnson 'dead'. Boris Johnson was admitted to the ICU of St. Thomas Hospital in London after his health worsened on Monday, days after testing positive for coronavirus. Boris Johnson tweeted that he was in good spirits and thanked the National Health Service (NHS) for taking care of him and others with the disease.
I’d like to say thank you to all the brilliant NHS staff taking care of me and others in this difficult time. You are the best of Britain.— Boris Johnson #StayHomeSaveLives (@BorisJohnson) April 6, 2020
Stay safe everyone, and please remember to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.
According to BBC UK, a No.10 statement was released which said that the Prime Minister has been under the care of doctors at St. Thomas' Hospital in London after being admitted with persistent symptoms of coronavirus. Over the course of Monday afternoon, the condition of the Prime Minister had worsened and on the advice of his medical team, he was moved to the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital.
In his latest tweet, Michael Vaughan asked that how can it be right for people to tweet about wanting the PM to die amidst the UK Lockdown. He even tagged Twitter asking them about the audacity and thinking behind accepting such messages. He called for more kindness too during these difficult times.
