British PM Johnson will be back at work on Monday, office says


London: A Downing Street spokeswoman confirmed on Saturday that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will return to work on Monday after she had recovered from a coronavirus case and sent it to critical illness in early April The intensive care unit received three nights of treatment.

Johnson, 55, will regain control of the government under the pressure of the economic effects of shutting down to curb the spread of highly contagious viruses and rising death tolls.

As of Saturday, the UK has recorded more than 20,000 deaths from COVID-19, a disease caused by a virus.

The government’s response to this pandemic is increasingly criticized, the number of tests is limited, and medical workers and paramedics lack protective equipment.

Johnson’s stand-in leader, Dominic Raab, is facing questions about how Britain can relax the blockade without a fatal second wave of infections.

The British interior minister urged the British to abide by the blockade rules earlier on Saturday. But many lawmakers want to relax restrictions to boost the economy, and budget forecasters say the economy may be falling into the worst recession in more than 300 years.

Johnson was taken to St Thomas Hospital with COVID-19 symptoms in central London on April 5 and underwent intensive care from April 6 to 9.
