The United Kingdom, UK, Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, was able to walk in the Hospital on Friday, 24-hours after leaving intensive care treatment for Covid-19.
Johnson, who tested positive for the coronavirus nearly two weeks ago, was admitted to St. Thomas’ Hospital, on Sunday evening, with a persistent high temperature and cough, as his condition deteriorated.
He was rushed into the intensive Care Unit of the Hospital on Monday night, where he was receiving oxygen support.
Three days later, he was moved out of intensive care, and so far, he has been “in good spirits.
“The Prime Minister has been able to do short walks between periods of rest, as part of the care he is receiving, to aid his recovery”, a Downing Street Spokesman said.
“His thoughts are with those affected by this terrible disease”, he added.
His designated Deputy, Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, said that he (Johnson) would soon be back at the helm, as the world faces one of its gravest public health crisis in a century.
Johnson is one of the high-profile World Leaders to suffer from the coronavirus.
Reacting, the United States, US, President, Donald Trump, called Johnson’s release from intensive care, “a very positive development”.
Johnson, who continues to be monitored closely, was able to wave at Medical staff, as he left the intensive care, according to his Official Spokesman.
