Boris Johnson has been discharged from hospital and will continue his recovery from coronavirus at Chequers.
The Prime Minister has been in hospital for almost a week when he was taken to St Thomas’ Hospital in central London with persistent Covid-19 symptoms.
On Monday he was taken into intensive care but after three nights was moved back to the general ward
A No10 spokesman said: “The PM has been discharged from hospital to continue his recovery, at Chequers.
“On the advice of his medical team, the PM will not be immediately returning to work.
“He wishes to thank everybody at St Thomas’ for the brilliant care he has received.
“All of his thoughts are with those affected by this illness.”
Mr Johnson is reported to have told friends that he “cannot thank them (medics) enough”.
He praised the “exemplary” care he is receiving, saying: “I owe them my life.”
He is still thought to be unable to see his pregnant fiancee Carrie Symonds who herself has been displaying coronavirus symptoms.
