Boris Johnson Discharged!

Boris Johnson has been discharged from hospital but won't immediately return to work as he continues to recover from coronavirus, Downing Street has said.

The prime minister will recuperate at Chequers, his official country retreat in Buckinghamshire, after spending almost a week at St Thomas' Hospital in central London.

Mr Johnson was first admitted to hospital last Sunday night for tests, due to his coronavirus symptoms persisting for more than a week after he was first found to have contracted COVID-19.

He was moved into intensive care when his health detriorated on Monday afternoon and he remained in critical care until Thursday, during which time he was supported with oxygen.

In his absence, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has been deputising for Mr Johnson - an arrangement that is likely to continue after the prime minister was advised not to make an immediate return to work.
