Johnson's return to work after COVID-19 recovery

Boris Johnson’s return to work after spending several weeks recovering from coronavirus, his deputy has said.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who has been standing in for him during his absence, said he was “raring to go”.

The PM spent a week in hospital, including three nights in intensive care, after being admitted on 5 April.

During his hospitalisation, he received regular oxygen treatment to help his breathing.

He hasn’t been seen in public since posting a video on Twitter on 12 April. In video he thanked staff at St Thomas’ Hospital in London for saving his life.

Last week he spoke to the Queen and US President and also met senior ministers, including Mr Raab and Chancellor Rishi Sunak, to discuss the next stage of the UK’s response to the pandemic.
