A No10 spokesperson said, “The Prime Minister has been able to take short walks, between rest periods, as part of the care he receives to assist in his recovery.
“He spoke to his doctors and thanked the entire clinical team for the incredible care he received.
“His thoughts are with the people affected by this terrible disease.”
The Prime Minister was able to take short walks, between rest periods, as part of the care he receives to assist in his recovery.
PM is “in a good mood” as he greeted and thanked NHS staff earlier in the day.
His spokesperson said, “I was told that he thanked the nurses and doctors he saw when he was transferred from the intensive care unit to the ward.
“I hope it was clear to the staff that they were grateful. “
BACK TO THE GAME
The spokesman said it was too early to say how long the PM should stay in the hospital.
He added: “The Prime Minister is back in a room and is continuing his recovery which is at an early stage. He continues to be in a very good mood.
“Decisions like this will be made on the advice of his medical team. They gave him brilliant care. “
This is due to the fact that Mr. Johnson’s father said today that the Prime Minister “almost took one for the team” with a coronavirus – and that he “has not yet emerged from the woods”.
Stanley Johnson, 79, praised the NHS for taking care of the PM and added that his son’s illness shows how serious the killer epidemic is.
PM’s father told BBC Radio 4 Today: “To use this American expression, he almost took one for the team. We have to make sure that we play the game correctly now. “
He also downplayed the suggestions that his son would now quickly return to work on Downing Street.
He must rest. If I understand correctly, he moved from the ISU to a recovery unit, but I don’t think you can say that he’s no longer in the woods now.
Stanley said, “It’s pretty simple now. He must rest. If I understand correctly, he moved from intensive care to a recovery unit, but I don’t think you can say that it came out of the woods now.
“It must take time. I can’t believe you can walk away from it and go straight back to Downing Street and take the reins without readjustment. “
This comes when the PM was supposed to be “in a good mood” and back on normal duty in St Thomas’ in London.
The progress of the PM has come as a moral boost for the nation as we enter the key Easter period in the fight against coronaviruses.
Officials say the infection rate could peak on Easter Sunday.
But it is essential that the British watch the lockout and stay home despite temperatures of 25 ° C (77 ° F).
The government hopes that this will allow the country to turn things around within three weeks.
Johnson, 55, sent a message to No. 10 Hospital yesterday.
His official spokesperson said, “The Prime Minister thanks the NHS for the brilliant care it provides.
“The applause from the caregivers provided wonderful and unifying moments for the whole country.
“I am sure that this evening we will once again see millions of people paying tribute to our fantastic dedicated caregivers. “
It also emerged last night that Boris was good enough to quickly call his pregnant fiancée Carrie Symonds, 32, and his family.
Doctors returned her two cell phones.
The birth of her child with Carrie is only a few weeks away and the couple have been separated since their isolation on March 27.
Relieved fiancée Carrie Symonds posted a photo of a rainbow with emojis cheering after the good news, timing it for the 8pm Clap for Carers tonight.
“SICK WITH INJURY”
The No. 10 senior conservative allies and assistants were relieved last night, one admitting that they all “felt quite concerned” for Johnson.
The Prime Minister’s reinstatement marks an extraordinary turnaround from the desperate situation he faced only 72 hours ago.
After a terrifying first 24-hour period at the hospital, hope had grown in number 10 since Wednesday that the Prime Minister was on the road to recovery.
Senior assistants feared the worst Monday night due to Boris’ extraordinarily rapid descent.
He was having serious breathing problems, with doctors warning him that he would likely have to go through a ventilator if his condition worsened further.
