The PM is making “very good progress” in his recovery from COVID-19, his office said on Saturday.
Johnson was moved out of intensive care after three nights on Thursday, and Downing Street said on Friday he had managed to start walking, although his recovery was at an early stage.
The Prime Minister spoke with his doctors and thanked the entire clinical team for the incredible help he received in the fight against coronavirus.
"His thoughts are with those who have suffered from this terrible disease," the spokesman for the head of the British government added.
Johnson was hospitalized at St. Thomas's Hospital in central London on Sunday evening - ten days after receiving a positive result on COVID-19. Symptoms worsened, and the next day the chairman of the British government was transferred to intensive care.
He spent three nights there. Later, the Prime Minister’s office on Downing Street confirmed that Johnson was in an early stage of recovery and was transferred to a regular hospital ward.
As we reported before, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was transferred to the intensive care unit of a London hospital after he exacerbated the symptoms of coronavirus.
