Breaking: BORIS Johnson Has Been Discharged From Hospital

Boris Johnson

BORIS Johnson has been discharged from hospital and will continue his recovery at Chequers, a Downing Street spokesman has confirmed.

No.10 said the PM is recovering well from COVID-19 on Easter Sunday morning, and will continue his recovery after making good progress over the last week.

How is Boris Johnson doing now?

Downing Street confirmed the Prime Minister was released from hospital at around lunchtime on Easter Sunday, following reports he told doctors and nurses: “I owe you my life.”

A No.10 spokesman said of the PM’s discharge: “The PM has been discharged from hospital to continue his recovery, at Chequers.

“On the advice of his medical team, the PM will not be immediately returning to work.

“He wishes to thank everybody at St Thomas’ for the brilliant care he has received.

“All of his thoughts are with those affected by this illness.”

The PM left ICU on Thursday evening, telling friends since that the care given to him was “exemplary” and he couldn’t “thank them enough”.

Mr Johnson was said to be recovering well, sitting up in bed and taking short walks as his condition progressed.

On April 11, Downing Street said the PM had been watching films such as Withnail And I, starring Richard E Grant, and the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, as well as playing Sudoku.

Mr Hancock told the public on Friday: ‘The PM is recovering and I’m sure the whole nation is delighted to see the news he’s getting better.

“The fact that he’s so ill demonstrates once again how serious this disease is.”

Boris Johnson was on April 9 transferred from ICU at St Thomas’ Hospital in London, after three nights of critical care.

He was said to be in “extremely good spirits” and is continuing to be closely monitored during the “early phase” of his recovery from COVID-19, reports the Press Association.

But, the PM now needs to take time to “rest up” while he continues to recover, his worried dad has urged.

Stanley Johnson said his son “almost took one for the team” and will need a period of rest before he can “pick up the reins” at Number 10.

An ICU consultant told PA that Mr Johnson is now likely to be using a normal face mask.

It is “almost impossible to know” how long it will take for the PM to be fully recovered, it was suggested.

In an interview on April 10, Mr Johnson’s dad said the whole family was “amazingly grateful” for the NHS’s efforts and for the huge outpouring of support for his sick son.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that the PM’s illness had underlined the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic – which has already claimed nearly 8,000 lives in the UK.

“To use that American expression, he almost took one for the team. We have got to make sure we play the game properly now,” Mr Johnson Snr said.
