United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson returned to his residence at number 10 Downing Street on Sunday after recovering from coronavirus, according to Reuters.
Johnson spent three nights in intensive care when he contracted the virus. He was tested positive on 27 March.
He was moved in the intensive care unit on 7 April, as his symptoms “worsened.”
When this was reported, this was all that dominated the headline in the UK, particularly when it was first suggested that it was only as a case of pneumonia.
Sources from St Thomas’s Hospital, where he is admitted, said he needed four liters of oxygen – below the normal threshold in intensive care of 15 liters.
The Queen was regularly briefed about this condition during his ordeal.
UK foreign secretary Dominic Raab was standing-in for the 55-year old Johnson while he was in the hospital.
Meanwhile, the official number of deaths related to COVID-19 in hospitals across the United Kingdom rose to 20,732, up by 413 in 24 hours, while confirmed cases stood at 152,840, up by 4,463, said the report.
The same report added, that deaths in the community and in nursing homes are slower to arrive, meaning that the overall toll is likely to be significantly higher.
