Boris Johnson Has Now Left ICU After 3 Days

The prime minister, who has COVID-19, spent three nights in ICU at St Thomas’ hospital after his condition worsened on Monday.

Boris Johnson was released from intensive care back into a ward in St Thomas’ hospital following his condition continued to improve on Thursday. He’s being treated for COVID-19, the disease resulting from the novel coronavirus.

“The Prime Minister was transferred this evening from intensive care back into the ward, at which he’ll get close observation during the first period of his recovery,” Downing Street said in a statement.

“He’s in great spirits,” the spokesperson added.

He was admitted to hospital on Sunday because his COVID-19 symptoms dropped.

Johnson was given standard oxygen therapy in intensive care and wasn’t placed to a ventilator.

Following a stressing 48 hours, chancellor Rishi Sunak stated on Wednesday he had been”improving”, and Downing Street confirmed he was”responding to treatment”.

That improvement continued on Thursday and the PM has been returned into a ward in the hospital, where he’s expected to stay for several days.

When he’s finally discharged from hospital, he’s very likely to want a few weeks of rest because he recovers from his prolonged case of COVID-19.

Speaking in the daily Downing Street press conference on Thursday, Raab said he hadn’t spoken to the prime minister, but he had the essential jurisdiction together with the cupboard to create a decision on expanding the current lockdown past next week.
