In a statement a No10 spokesman said: “The PM has been discharged from hospital to continue his recovery, at Chequers.

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

“All of his thoughts are with those affected by this illness.”

The prime minister was being treated at St Thomas’ hospital in south London and had spent time in the hospital’s intensive care unit after his situation deteriorated.

Johnson was taken into hospital last Sunday after his coronavirus symptoms, including a cough and a high temperature, persisted.

He was moved into intensive care on Monday evening.

The government said he was not been put on a ventilator but had continued to receive “standard oxygen treatment”.
