Boris Johnson leaves hospital as he continues recovery from coronavirus

Source: the guardian

Boris Johnson has thanked the NHS for saving his life as he left hospital to recuperate at Chequers, after a week of treatment for Covid-19.

The prime minister singled out two nurses in particular for watching over his bedside in intensive care for 48 hours “when things could have gone either way” – Jenny from New Zealand and Luis from Portugal.

Speaking in a video message just hours after leaving St Thomas’ hospital in south London, the prime minister expressed optimism the UK was “making progress in this incredible national battle against coronavirus”.

Johnson said he had left hospital “after a week in which the NHS has saved my life, no question”.
