“It’s hard to find words to express my debt”: UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson expresses his gratitude to the medical staff for saving his life
After spending a week in the hospital, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson left St. Thomas Hospital in London Sunday to continue his recovery from coronavirus. Johnson spent three nights in the intensive care unit last week, spokesman said in a statement obtained by The Guardian. The 55-year old prime minister moved to intensive care unit on April 6 after his condition COVID-19 worsened.
Boris Johnson addresses the public following hospital release. In a video address to the country following his discharge from the hospital, the prime minister praised the National Health Service (NHS) for its work. He credited the hospital staff for saving his life. “I have today left the hospital after a week in which the NHS has saved my life, no question,” he said. “It’s hard to find words to express my debt.”
“On the advice of his medical team, the PM will not be immediately returning to work,” the spokesman said. “He wishes to thank everybody at St Thomas’ for the brilliant care he has received. All of his thoughts are with those affected by this illness.”
