Prime Minister Boris Johnson is said to be in ‘good spirts’ and making a ‘good recovery’ at the Chequers after being discharged from hospital following his coronavirus diagnosis.
The Prime Minister was rushed to the ICU at St Thomas Hospital on April 6 having been taken into hospital the day before. He spent three nights in intensive care.
He has since been discharged from hospital after 10 days and is continuing his recovery at Chequers – the Prime Minister’s country residence.
Speaking at the first digital House of Commons, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is standing in for the PM, gave an update on Mr Johnson’s condition.
He said: “He is making a good recovery and is in good spirits.
“The coronavirus pandemic presents us with one of the biggest challenges we have faced as a country in decades. Our message to the British public is clear – please stay at home to protect the NHS and to save lives.
“As a government, we continue to take the right measures at the right time, guided by the science and the medical experts.”
Mr Raab paid tribute to the NHS and frontline workers, adding: “We owe them an enormous debt of gratitude and we will continue to do whatever it takes to support them.”
He said the public’s “incredible” support was helping the NHS and “flattening the peak of this virus”.
