UK death toll exceeds 10,000 as Boris Johnson continues recovery at Checkers – The Sun


BORIS Johnson will continue this morning to restore his country home, Checkers.

The Prime Minister, who left hospital yesterday, will not return to work immediately.

Johnson, 55, was taken to St Thomas Hospital in London last Sunday – 10 days after being tested positive.

The PM recorded a video and thanked two nurses who stood by his bedside for 48 hours “when things could have gone both ways”.

“These are Jenny from New Zealand – Invercargill on the South Island to be exact – and Luis from Portugal, near Porto,” he said.

“In the end, my body started to get enough oxygen because every second of the night they were watching, they were thinking, taking care of, and doing the procedures I needed.”

Downing Street said, “On the advice of his medical team, the Prime Minister will not immediately return to work. He would like to thank everyone in St Thomas for the brilliant care he received.

“All his thoughts are with the people affected by this disease. “

This comes as the death toll from coronavirus in the UK yesterday hit 10,612 people after the death of 737 people in just 24 hours.

The ministers said the UK will remain in detention until the numbers begin to drop, while police have already fined over 1,000 fines for those who break the restrictions.
