Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved out of intensive care but still remains in hospital. Johnson has been receiving treatment for Coronavirus at St Thomas’ Hospital in London since Sunday.
He was taken to hospital on Sunday, 10 days after he tested positive for COVID-19, and was moved to the ICU on Monday. Downing Street reported that Johnson received "standard oxygen treatment" in ICU and was not put on a ventilator. President Trump tweeted that Mr Johnson's move out of intensive care was "great news".
Health Secretary Matt Hancock added: "So good that the prime minister is out of intensive care and on the road to recovery. The NHS is there for us all and I know our amazing NHS staff have given him their characteristic world-class care." Newly elected Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer also welcomed the "good news", tweeting: "I hope it is the beginnings of a speedy recovery."
Meanwhile, applause rang out across the UK in the third "Clap for Carers" event, where people showed their appreciation for NHS staff and other workers on the front line of the pandemic.
