Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved from intensive care back to the ward at St Thomas’ Hospital, Downing Street has said.
The PM was taken to hospital on Sunday night after his Covid-19 symptoms persisted, before being moved to intensive care on Monday night.
Mr Johnson had tested positive for coronavirus last week.
A Downing Street spokesman said: “The Prime Minister has been moved this evening from intensive care back to the ward, where he will receive close monitoring during the early phase of his recovery.
“He is in extremely good spirits.”
He remains at London’s St Thomas’ Hospital.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock tweeted: “So good that the Prime Minister is out of intensive care and on the road to recovery.
“The NHS is there for us all and I know our amazing NHS staff have given him their characteristic world-class care.”
