The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has been discharged from the hospital after staying in the intensive care unit following worsening COVID-19 symptoms, OYOGist.com has learned.
The 55-year old was taken into the intensive care on Sunday 5th of April, 2020 after his symptoms worsened. Boris was taken to the hospital 10 days after he tested positive to COVID-19, and admitted at London’s St Thomas’ Hospital.
After spending 3 nights at the ICU, the British Prime Minister was moved to the ward on Thursday when he showed improvements.
Boris Johnson, who was discharged from the hospital on April 12 on Easter Sunday, thanked everyone who took care of him during his critical times. He thanked the UK NHS workers, citing two particular nurses – Jenny a New Zealander and Luis a Portuguese for standing by his bedside for 48 hours.
“Good afternoon, I have today left the hospital after a week in which the NHS saved my life, no questions. It’s hard to find words to express my debt, but before I come to that, I want to thank everyone in the entire U.K for the effort and the effort and the sacrifice you have made and are making,” Boris Johnson said in a video clip.
“In the last seven days, I have of course seen the pressure that the NHS is under. I have seen the personal courage not just of the doctors and nurses but of everyone: the cleaners the cooks … everyone.
“It is thanks to that courage, that devotion that duty and that love that our NHS has been unbeatable.”
