<!– Boris Johnson: thanks St Thomas Hospital staff –>
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has thanked staff at St Thomas Hospital for taking care of him while he recovers from COVID-19.
“I can’t thank them enough. I owe them my life,” Johnson said in a brief statement issued late on Saturday.
The 55-year-old conservative politician was hospitalised last Sunday running a high fever.
He spent three days in the intensive care unit after his health deteriorated.
He was moved back to a normal ward on Thursday.
When the prime minister will be able to return to work remains unclear.
According to Britain’s Press Association, Johnson has a tablet computer to watch films such as “Lord of the Rings” .
He also likes to play sudoku while recovering from Covid-19.
He has received thousands of get-well cards from well-wishers and daily letters from his fiance Carrie Symonds.
