PM Boris Johnson leaves hospital after coronavirus treatment

 United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson was discharged from the hospital on Sunday, a major step forward in his recovery from the coronavirus and a welcome relief for a nation whose political leadership has been harder hit by the contagion than that of any other Western country.

PM Johnson, who spent three nights in intensive care at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London, will still convalesce at Chequers, the prime minister’s country house, the government said in a statement. But he will soon be able to sign off on major decisions, including when to ease the country’s lockdown.

“On the advice of his medical team,  Johnson will not be immediately returning to work,” the statement said. “Johnson wishes to thank everybody at St Thomas’ for the brilliant care he has received.”

Britain’s foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, had been deputized by Mr. Johnson to carry out his duties during his illness. But the absence of a formal succession plan in the country had raised questions about who would take charge if the prime minister were incapacitated for an extended period.
