THE Bradford district’s MPs have united saying they are rooting for Boris Johnson after he was admitted to intensive care following a worsening of his coronavirus symptoms.

The Prime Minister was transferred to the intensive care unit at St Thomas' Hospital in London on Monday evening as what was said to be a "precaution" in case he needed to be put on a ventilator.

Our district’s MPs have sent their goodwill messages to Mr Johnson and his family, including his pregnant fiancee Carrie Symonds, saying party allegiances are irrelevant at this time.

Bradford West MP Naz Shah (Lab) said: “I’m really, really saddened by the turn of events for Boris.

“I wish him a speedy recovery.

“My heart goes out to Carrie and his family.

“There is nothing party political during a crisis like this. We are in this together. We’ve got to work together.

“My thoughts and prayers remain with his family.

“If people didn’t think this was serious before, it doesn’t get more serious than people dying. Somebody knows somebody who has got it.

“I would say stay at home.”

Bradford South MP Judith Cummins (Lab) said: “My thoughts are with the Prime Minister and his family at this difficult time.

“I wish him well for a speedy recovery.”

Shipley MP Philip Davies (Cons) said: “We are all absolutely shocked by how he is.

“He has been working ridiculous hours over a long period of time. The upshot is that that makes you weakened when you suffer from something like this, your immune system is not as strong.

“Everybody, regardless of their political allegiance, is rooting for him to make sure he makes a full recovery.

“My thoughts are with him and Carrie. It must just be an awful time for her and his family.

“We are all rooting for the Prime Minister.

“Nobody is immune from this, it can affect everybody.”

The other district MPs took to twitter last night to give their reaction to the news about Mr Johnson’s health.

Bradford East MP Imran Hussain (Lab) tweeted: “Wishing the Prime Minister well and all the best for recovery. This is a shocking reminder that Coronavirus can affect any one of us. Please all take care and be safe.”

Keighley and Ilkley MP Robbie Moore (Con) tweeted: “Sending all my best wishes and healing thoughts to Boris Johnson this evening. Stay strong.”

Batley and Spen MP Tracy Brabin (Lab) posted: “Wishing the Prime Minister a speedy recovery. Thank you to all the #NHSheroes in hospitals and labs working day in day out to beat this virus. #StayHomeSaveLives”
