Boris Johnson out of intensive care

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved out of intensive care and is now continuing his recovery in a low dependency ward at St Thomas' Hospital in London where his condition is being closely monitored, Downing Street confirmed.

A government spokesman added that the PM  is in "extremely good spirits" and is now in the early recovery stage. It is likely that Johnson has been allowed out of bed as part of his rehabilitation. 

He was admitted on Sunday, 10 days after testing positive for Covid-19 infection; he was moved to intensive care on Monday and given oxygen therapy although without the need of a ventilator. 

Cabinet Minister criticised for breaking lockdown curfew

Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has been heavily criticised by the UK media for breaching restrictions on travel while the country is in lockdown to visit family members. Jenrick was reported to have made a 156-mile journey from London to Herefordshire to drop off food supplies and medicine at the mansion where his wife and three children are staying and then on to his parents' house another 40 miles away in Shropshire on 29 March. He had repeatedly advised the public to stay at home and not make unnecessary journeys to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Current restrictions oblige the public to stay at home unless they are shopping for basic necessities (such as food or medicine), exercising (limited to once a day), seeking medical assistance or to avoid injury, illness or escape the risk of harm, providing care or assistance to a vulnerable person, providing emergency assistance or donating blood, travelling to work or to carry out voluntary services where these cannot be carried out from home.
