Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the United Kingdom was released from intensive care on Thursday, a spokesperson of Downing Street said.
“The Prime Minister has been moved this evening from intensive care back to the ward, where he will receive close monitoring during the early phase of his recovery,” a spokesperson of Downing Street told local media.
“He is in extremely good spirits,” the spokesman added.
Mr Johnson was last Sunday taken into intensive care after his coronavirus symptoms worsened, at the London’s St. Thomas’ Hospital.
He has since then been deputized by Dominic Raab, the U.K.’s foreign secretary.
