The Prime Minister of United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, has thanked his country's National Health Service for saving his life. Mr Johnson, 55, tested positive for COVID-19 on March 27th. He self-isolated in his apartment in Downing Street, London and continued to lead country and its response to coronavirus pandemic. However, his symptoms persisted and his condition took turn for worse. On April 5th, he was admitted to London hospital for tests. A day later he was moved to the hospital's intensive care unit as his condition worsened. Downing Street said this was "precautionary move". He remained conscious and was able to breathe without needing ventilator.

Mr Johnson said care he received from nurses, doctors and other carers was "exemplary". He said: "I can't thank them enough. I owe them my life." He is now out of intensive care and is on recovery ward in hospital. Downing Street said he was making "very good progress" and had been doing Sudoku puzzles and watching films in his hospital bed. His biographer Andrew Gimson said: "Boris never used to believe in illness. He neither admitted to sickness himself....He believed he was strong enough to keep going regardless of any symptoms from which he might be suffering. His strong inclination was to overwork, not to put his feet up. In light of his experiences one hopes he will change his outlook."
