Boris Johnson has been discharged from hospital, Downing Street has confirmed.
A No 10 spokesman said: “The PM has been discharged from hospital to continue his recovery, at Chequers.
“On the advice of his medical team, the PM will not be immediately returning to work. He wishes to thank everybody at St Thomas’ for the brilliant care he has received.
“All of his thoughts are with those affected by this illness.”
The prime minister was first admitted to hospital at 8pm on Sunday 5 April and then transferred to intensive care the following day after his symptoms worsened.
He left the intensive care ward on Thursday evening and released a short statement on Saturday night praising staff at St Thomas’ hospital in London where he was being treated.
“I can’t thank them enough, I owe them my life,” he said.
On Sunday morning, business secretary Alok Sharma said on Sky News that Johnson was “in very good spirits” and that he was “walking about a bit”.
