Boris Johnson is doing better. British Prime Minister infected with new coronavirus, was released Thursday April 9 in the evening of intensive care where he had been transferred Monday evening. Boris Johnson remains hospitalized anyway. “The Prime Minister has been transferred from intensive care to another department of the hospital, where he will be placed under close surveillance during the initial phase of his recovery”, the spokesman said in a statement.
Boris Johnson's admission to the intensive care unit led to his temporary replacement by the Minister of Foreign Affairs Dominic Raab at the head of the government. But for the past few hours, the news has been reassuring. Prime Minister's health “continues to improve”, had already indicated Thursday morning Downing Street. “The Prime Minister has had a good night and his health continues to improve in intensive care in St Thomas”, the central London hospital where he was admitted on Sunday, his spokesman said.
