Johnson's hospitalisation: a tale of two treatments
Tory prime minister Boris Johnson was discharged from hospital on 12 April following treatment for Covid-19. He had undergone testing at the first sign of trouble, while millions of workers with symptoms are told to simply stay home and see.
Johnson returns to a large, well-appointed, comfortable residence with a team of staff to look after him. His job and income are secure. He can work remotely at no extra risk to himself or others while in self-isolation.
A care worker had the coronavirus at the same time, and was treated with oxygen on a ward in the same hospital. Here we carry that patient's short tale of two treatments.
"Johnson was put in a private room at the top of St Thomas' Hospital. But then they realised he was too far from intensive care in an emergency. So they moved him into a room next to ICU with a whole team supporting him. Everyone else had one or two nurses to every four to six patients. Some staff seemed genuinely disturbed that he was in their hospital."
