Boris “sounds alarmingly breathless” at his first press conference after his recovery


The Prime Minister appeared to be “breathless” at times at his first press conference after recovering from a coronavirus.

People watching were concerned about Boris Johnson, who had to spend several days in intensive care suffering from the disease.

Piers Morgan wrote on Twitter: “Boris has a disturbing breath. “

Meanwhile, Daily Mirror deputy editor Kevin Maguire said: “Johnson looks and feels sick, breathless and in trouble. Unwise and not heroic to be on a podium rather than in bed. “

Journalist Christina Patterson wrote, “He’s not doing well. It doesn’t sound good. He is out of breath. A horrible disease and I certainly won’t rush to catch it, thank you. “

During the press conference, some noted that it seemed to sound better as the briefing continued.

“It got better throughout the session and it’s great to see it so lively,” wrote a Twitter user.

Lizzie Jack added, “Yes, he’s definitely better now. No breath and full flow. Me too, he’s a fabulous leader. Courage in his convictions. Gives me a lot of confidence in the situation. “

At the press conference, Johnson told the country, “I am sorry that I have not been part of this trio for so long.

“I want to thank everyone who did such a good job in my absence and I want to thank the NHS for so much, including bringing me back here and I might add, a much happier hospital visit yesterday . “

He announced that the country has passed the peak of the disease and “can now see the sunlight in front of us”.

He said: “It is through this massive collective effort to protect the NHS that we have avoided an uncontrollable and catastrophic epidemic – where the worst reasonable scenario was 500,000 dead.

“And so I can confirm today that for the first time we have passed the peak of this disease. We have passed the summit and we are on the descending slope. “

He said we will get more information next week on how the lockdown will be facilitated: “I will be presenting a comprehensive plan next week to explain how we can move our economy, how we can get our kids back school and child care, and how we can get to work and make life at work safer. “
