PM Johnson is out of intensive care while Covid-19 recovery continues
LONDON: Prime Minister Boris Johnson He was resting in the hospital on Friday, recovering from Covid-19, while his British companions were told to resist the temptation of the spring sun during Easter when the coronavirus outbreak nears a peak.
The 55-year-old leader's blatant visible decline shook the nation, but he was released from three nights of intensive care on Thursday, after being admitted after suffering from fever and cough.
The prime minister is back in a room and continues his recovery, which is at an early stage, his spokesman told reporters.
They told me that he was thanking all the nurses and doctors he saw when he was transferred from the intensive care unit to the ward. The hospital said he was in a very good mood last night.
Johnson was the first world leader to be hospitalized with the coronavirus, forcing him to turn over control to the foreign minister just as Britain's situation worsened dramatically.
The death toll is 7,978, the fifth highest in the world.
Although his condition improved, it was unclear how long Johnson would be disabled. Her spokesperson said that her recovery was just beginning and that she would follow the advice of her medical team.
You must rest, your father, Stanley Johnson , he told BBC radio. You can't get away from this and go straight back to the street and pick up the reins without a period of readjustment.
Johnson's pregnant fiancé, Carrie Symonds, who has also had symptoms of coronavirus, tweeted an image of the rainbow, in support of healthcare workers, along with clapping emojis.
In the prime minister's absence, the government must consider whether and when it can end Britain's closure, although Raab said Thursday it was too early to make a decision because the country had not yet reached the peak of the outbreak.
The government says it will have a better idea for next week if the blockade has succeeded in reducing coronavirus infections and hospital admissions.
We've already begun to see a plateau, said a London professor, who helped shape the official response.
He added to BBC radio that it will take several more days for the rate of deaths to slow down and more weeks to draw definitive conclusions that could allow restrictions to be lifted.
Britain is enduring its third week of strict restrictions, during which the police have taken on new powers to fine people who stray too far or too far from home unless they are on essential work or are searching for food and medicine.
With the start of a four-day Easter holiday, greeted by a radiant sun, authorities were on the lookout for those who were tempted to see family and friends, which could jeopardize the impact of the closure.
Scotland's medical director has already resigned after ignoring her own advice to stay home, and a senior minister was under pressure on Friday after newspapers said she traveled to a second home outside London and visited her parents.
For clarity, my parents asked me to hand over some essentials, including medications, housing minister Robert Jenrick tweeted in defense, adding that he had left London to return to his family's home.
We are confident that he followed the rules for social distancing, Johnson's spokesman said.
Prime Minister Stanley's father said his son's illness would be a lesson to the public.
If he can hit the prime minister, for heaven's sake, well, he is coming home, he said.
