British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he thought of New Zealand during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Johnson, 55, tested positive for COVID-19 on March 28 and isolated himself at home, but after symptoms worsened he was put in critical care on Sundays.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said at a news conference on Tuesday that he had sent him a message after learning of his admission to the hospital.
“I want to acknowledge the news this morning that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is currently in intensive care.
“After learning that the prime minister tested positive for COVID-19 a few days ago, I now send him a message to convey New Zealand’s best wishes.
“He answered the message and said that his thoughts were ‘with all our friends in New Zealand'”.
Ardern said it was important for everyone to support one another through a global pandemic.
“This is more than ever before when every country is connected and I know we want everyone in the UK especially the Prime Minister to know that we think of them.”
Johnson was hospitalized on Sunday (local time) as a “preventative measure” when his symptoms changed persistently 10 days after a positive test result.
