Boris Johnson tested negative for coronavirus after being discharged from hospital


British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was tested negative for coronavirus before being discharged Sunday from the hospital, where he was hospitalized for a week for treatment of COVID-19, his spokesman said.

Exiting the hospital is a standard medical procedure, according to the spokesman of the prime minister of the United Kingdom.

Boris Johnson was admitted to intensive care for several days after being infected with the coronavirus. On leaving the hospital, the prime minister of the United Kingdom said that they owe their lives to the medical staff who treated him.

Boris Johnson announced on March 27 that he had contracted COVID-19, becoming the first major government leader to become ill.

Ten days later, the 55-year-old Johnson was admitted to St Thomas’ Hospital in London “for some routine tests” and was transferred to intensive care on Monday evening due to worsening coronavirus symptoms. During this period Johnson was replaced by Foreign Minister Dominic Raab.

The health of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson improved on Thursday, and he was transferred from intensive care, where he was treated for coronavirus, to a regular ward.

On Monday, the number of deaths caused by the pandemic reached 11,329 in the United Kingdom, 717 more than the previous day. Excluding Northern Ireland, 88,621 people were confirmed with coronavirus.
