Boris Johnson will return to work at the start of the week as pressure increases on the UK government over its handling of the coronavirus crisis which has claimed more than 20,000 lives.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab told Sky News that Johnson would be back in his Downing Street office on Monday after recovering from the virus and was in “good spirits” and “raring to go”. Johnson has been recuperating at the British prime ministerial retreat, Chequers, outside London since his release from hospital on April 12.
He spent three days in intensive care and later admitted “things could have gone either way.” Raab on Sunday resisted growing calls for the government to relax strict social distancing rules and said they would “be with us for some time”. .
