Boris Johnson Discharged From Hospital As His Coronavirus Recovery Continues

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday was making "very good progress" in his recovery in hospital from Covid-19 coronavirus, officials said, two days after leaving intensive care.

And thanked the staff at St Thomas' hospital for the - quote - "brilliant care" he received.

Johnson issued remarks through his spokespeople while at St. Thomas, thanking the National Health Service (NHS) doctors and staff for the "exemplary" care they provided.

"I owe them my life", Johnson said of the NHS medical staff at the St. Thomas' Hospital.

News of his improvement contrasted with the latest official statistics showing Britain recorded almost 1,000 daily Covid-19 deaths for the second consecutive day - one of the worst rates globally.

Mr Johnson's father, Stanley, said on Friday the Prime Minister would need to take his time with his recovery.

There "were times last week that were very dark indeed", Symonds wrote.

"I want to thank everyone in the entire United Kingdom for the sacrifice you have made and are making" he said. In a statement Thursday, a spokesman at 10 Downing Street said Johnson "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".

The death toll from the Coronavirus Disease in the United Kingdom rose to a daily figure of almost 1,000 for the first time since its outbreak in the country on Friday.

Despite Johnson's improving condition, it remains unclear when he might be discharged from hospital and how quickly he would return to work once out.

Globally, the death toll from the virus soared past 109,000 this weekend, with more than 1.7 million reported infections. "My heart goes out to all those in similar situations, anxious sick about their loved ones", she continued, noting she was feeling "incredibly lucky".

Mr Johnson's fiancee, Carrie Symonds, was also ill with the symptoms of Covid-19 but did not require hospital treatment and was recovering.

The latest data of the new crown epidemic situation released by the British Ministry of Health on the 11th show that the country has accumulatively confirmed 7891 cases; the cumulative number of deaths has reached 9875 cases, an increase of 917 cases compared with the previous day's official figures.

Britain has been in lockdown for almost three weeks and the government is expected to extend the restrictions in coming days. "Because although we mourn every day those who are taken from us in such numbers, and though the struggle is by no means over, we are now making progress in this incredible national battle against coronavirus".
