British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has spent a second night in intensive care.

And is in a stable condition after receiving oxygen support to help him fight COVID-19.

Fifty-five-year-old Johnson tested positive nearly two weeks ago and was taken to London's St Thomas' hospital on Sunday evening due to a persistent high temperature and cough.

His condition deteriorated on Monday (April 6) and he was rushed into an intensive care unit, but he was not put on a ventilator.

Foreign Minister Dominic Raab is in charge in his absence.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH FOREIGN MINISTER, DOMINIC RAAB, SAYING: "I'm confident he'll pull through because if there's one thing I know about this prime minister, he's a fighter and he'll be back at the helm leading us through this crisis in short order." Meanwhile, the UK is entering what scientists say is the deadliest phase of the outbreak, and is grappling with the question of when to lift a lockdown - now in its third week.

Government ministers have been debating how long the world's fifth-largest economy could afford to be shut down for.

And the long-term implications of one of the most stringent set of emergency controls in peacetime history.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said there was no possibility of lifting lockdown measures any time soon, as the peak of the outbreak in Britain was still over a week away.

Starmer urges Johnson to apologise for comments on care homes

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer called on Boris Johnson to apologise for his comments on care homes.Sir Keir said: “On Monday, when asked why care home deaths had been so high the Prime Minister said, and I quote, ‘too many care homes didn’t really follow the procedures in the way that they could have’.“That has caused huge offence to frontline care workers. It has now been 48 hours. Will the Prime Minister apologise to care workers?”Mr Johnson replied: “The last thing I wanted to do is to blame care workers for what has happened or for any of them to think that I was blaming them because they’ve worked hard, incredibly hard, throughout this crisis, looking after some of the most vulnerable people in our country and doing an outstanding job.”“And as he knows, tragically, 257 of them have lost their lives.“And when it comes to taking blame, I take full responsibility for what has happened.”
