British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved out of intensive care after being moved in three days ago for treatment of his then-worsening coronavirus symptoms.
It was reported that Johnson had taken oxygen while in the ICU, though he did not require a ventilator and he was always conscious.
The UK Prime Minister, 55, was "in good spirits" at his time in St. Thomas' hospital ICU in London, a statement from number 10 said.
"The Prime Minister has been moved this evening from intensive care back to the ward, where he will receive close monitoring during the early phase of his recovery," the statement reads.
British Thoracic Society president, Dr Jon Bennett said it was “heartening” that Johnson was receiving “standard oxygen treatment” because mechanical support like high flow nasal oxygen, continuous positive airway pressure or ventilators would be necessary if the case was more serious.
Johnson announced that he had contracted the virus on March 27 in a video published on Twitter.
He was brought into ICU 10 days after he tested positive for the virus, and was released from ICU three days later. He remains in hospital for the time being.
Both Andrew Scheer and Justin Trudeau expressed good wishes to the British prime minister.
