London: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson left the intensive care unit three days after receiving COVID-19 treatment on Thursday.
“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,” a statement said.
“He is in extremely good spirits,” it added.
The 55-year-old Conservative leader had received “standard oxygen treatment” after he was transferred to the intensive care unit at London s St Thomas s hospital on Monday, his spokesman said earlier.
Although much of the UK ’s focus is on Johnson ’s health, there are also concerns about the number of people infected with the virus, and the government plans to extend the blockade imposed on March 23.
The government announced on Thursday that another 881 people had died, bringing the total number of British people to 7,978.
At the daily coronavirus response meeting, senior ministers discussed strict social alienation measures, initially planned for three weeks.
Dominic Raab, who represents Johnson as foreign secretary, warned that the blockade that will end on Monday cannot be lifted immediately. He said: “We are not finished yet, we must move on.
“Deaths are still rising and we haven t yet reached the peak of the virus, so it s too early to lift the measures,” he said.
“We don t expect to be able to say more on this until the end of next week,” he added.
Greater Manchester Police said Thursday it had to break up 660 parties last weekend.
When asked if the British government could give police more power during the blockade, a Downing Street spokesman said: “At present, our focus is to ensure that the steps we have taken are properly implemented.”
At the same time, the ministers warned the public to abide by social evacuation regulations before predicting high temperatures on Easter weekend.
“We ll have to stay at home and the reason why we re having to stay at home is in order to protect the NHS and save lives,” added Dowden.
Johnson was hospitalised Sunday over concerns he still had a cough and high temperature 10 days after being diagnosed with coronavirus.
He spent the first nine days of self-isolation in an apartment above Downing Street’s office.
He received support messages from all over the world, and US President Donald Trump expressed his best wishes to his “very good friends”.
Russian leader Vladimir Putin said that Johnson’s “vitality, optimism and sense of humor” will make him through the storm.
The British government has been criticized for its sluggish response to the pandemic, initially refusing to follow other European countries and asking people to stay at home because the virus spread rapidly around the world.
Johnson himself said in early March that he was still shaking hands with people-just to allow COVID-19 to sweep British institutions in a few weeks.
The government has always insisted that the coronavirus response has been dominated by medical and scientific evidence.
