UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was “keen to get back to work” after returning from St. Thomas’ Hospital in London, where he has spent a week following a deterioration in his condition, caused by COVID-19, APA reports citing Daily Mail.
However, according to the outlet, Johnson’s pregnant girlfriend Carrie Symonds, who has also developed symptoms of coronavirus, as well as the prime minister’s doctors, were still concerned that it might be too early for the politician to get back in the saddle.
According to the PM’s spokesman, Johnson also had a call with First Secretary of State and his deputy during the pandemic Dominic Raab a few days ago and was now fully “focused on recovery”.
“He continues his recovery at Chequers”, Johnson’s spokesman said as quoted by Daily Mail. “He's not doing government work”.
Note that Boris Johnson tested positive for coronavirus in late March and was admitted to hospital on 5 April after corona-induced symptoms, including a cough and a high temperature, caused a deterioration in his condition. The prime minister received “standard oxygen treatment” in the hospital, according to official reports, and was discharged a week later after making “good progress” and testing negative for the infection.
