British PM Boris Johnson Transferred Out Of ICU

The Associated Press reports:

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been removed from an intensive care unit in a London hospital after three nights receiving oxygen treatment for persistent coronavirus symptoms.

“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,” a Downing Street spokesman said today. “He is in extremely good spirits.”

The announcement came just hours after Johnson was said to have had a “good night” in St Thomas’ Hospital in London and thanked the NHS for the “brilliant care” he has received, his official spokesman said on Thursday.
