UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson returned to his official residence, 10 Downing Street, after recovering from the novel coronavirus. According to the British media reports, Boris Johnson went to his normal schedule following his treatment at a London hospital. UK has registered 413 new deaths due to COVID-19, which is the lowest increase in daily deaths since March 31.
The death toll in the UK currently stands at 20,732. UK Environment Secretary George Eustice at Sunday’s coronavirus press conference said that “There are encouraging signs of progress, but we will not adjust our social distancing measures until our 5 tests are met — that the daily death rate falls sustainably and consistently. The rate of COVID-19 infection is decreasing and there is no risk of a second peak.”
“For now, the most important thing is to stay at home, to protect the National Health Service (NHS), and save lives,” he added. Earlier on April 12, Boris Johnson had said that he had left the hospital “after a week in which the NHS has saved my life, no question.”
