Moscow, Apr 12: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was well on path to recovery from the deadly Novel Coronavirus, gave a big 'Thank You' to the medical staff of the National Health Service, saying that he 'owes them his life'.
The UK premier, who became a subject of global concern earlier this month, when he was hospitalised and later moved to the intensive care unit with persistent COVID-19 symptoms, on Saturday night, expressed his gratitude to the medical staff of London's St Thomas Hospital.
'I can't thank them enough. I owe them my life,' BBC quoted Mr Johnson as saying. He was taken out of the ICU on Thursday and was reported to be walking around and speaking to doctors the next day. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab will continue to deputise, as Mr Johnson regains his health over the coming weeks, with the BBC quoting Mr Raab as saying that the UK Prime Minister will be in charge during the next review of UK's lockdown measures.
The country has nearly 80,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with over 9,870 confirmed hospital deaths, according to the Johns Hopkins University's global COVID-19 dashboard. (UNI)
