British Prime Minister, Mr Boris Johnson, has been discharged from hospital after a serious battle with coronavirus that almost took his life.
10 Downing Street confirmed yesterday afternoon that Johnson had been released from St Thomas’s Hospital in central London, after one week on admission.
He spent three nights in intensive care receiving oxygen treatment as Britons waited for news of his condition.
Johnson, 55, will now head to his official country residence of Chequers in Buckinghamshire to rest. His spokesman said that ‘on the advice of his medical team, the PM will not be immediately returning to work’.
As his release was revealed, his pregnant fiancee Carrie Symonds, 32, tweeted her praise for staff at St Thomas’s, adding that “there were times last week that were very dark indeed.
“My heart goes out to all those in similar situations, worried sick about their loved ones. ‘I cannot thank our magnificent NHS enough. The staff at St Thomas’ Hospital have been incredible. I will never, ever be able to repay you and I will never stop thanking you”, she added.
