Ten days before the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was taken to hospital it was revealed that he had tested positive for the coronavirus. Now it has been announced that he’s been taken out of the intensive care unit (ICU).


On Sunday, April 5, 2020, Johnson, 55, was admitted to London’s St. Thomas' Hospital after suffering from "persistent" coronavirus symptoms. By Monday he had been moved into the intensive care unit.

Later on, it was revealed that he had received "standard oxygen treatment" but didn’t need a ventilator at that point. Two days later, a spokesperson shared that Johnson was well enough to sit up in bed and communicate with his medical team.

Before the prime minister was moved out of ICU, a spokesperson shared how he’d had a "good night." The representative also thanked the UK's National Health Service (NHS) for their "brilliant care" of Johnson.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump also took to Twitter to share the good news. He wrote: “Great News: Prime Minister Boris Johnson has just been moved out of Intensive Care. Get well Boris!!!”

The British Health Secretary Matt Hancock had this to say: "So good that the prime minister is out of intensive care and on the road to recovery.”

He also mentioned how the “amazing NHS staff” had been giving P.M. Johnson “their characteristic world-class care."

The prime minister’s fiancée, Carrie Symonds, 32, tweeted a painting of a rainbow in what appears to be her response to the good news. She is currently pregnant with their first child and has also been recovering from coronavirus-like symptoms.
