Mr. Johnson was hospitalized at St Thomas Hospital in Westminster on Monday evening.
Doctors returned Boris to his two cellphones after 72 hours in the intensive care unit, and he should now need a month’s rest.
The birth of her child with Mrs. Symonds is only a few weeks away and the couple have separated since they entered solitary confinement on March 27.
His relieved fiancée posted a photo of a rainbow with emojis cheering after the good news, timing it for the Clap for Carers at 8 p.m. Thursday evening.
“VERY HIGHLY RECOGNIZED”
Johnson’s father, Stanley Johnson, said the whole family was “extremely grateful” to the NHS for helping the Prime Minister.
He also said they were “incredibly grateful for the tremendous surge of support” from the audience.
Johnson Snr told Radio 4 Today that his son must now recover.
He explained, “He has to rest. As I understand it, he moved from intensive care to a recovery unit, but I don’t think you can say it’s not wood anymore.

“It must take time. I can’t believe you can get away from that and go straight back to Downing Street and take the reins without a readjustment period. “
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.
A No10 spokesperson said, “The Prime Minister was transferred from intensive care tonight to the ward, where he will be closely monitored during the first phase of his recovery.
“He is in a very good mood.
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 No10 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. “
“SICK WITH INJURY”
The No. 10 senior conservative allies and assistants were relieved last night, one of them admitting that they all felt “pretty sick with worry” for Mr. 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 No. 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.
