Coronavirus: Boris Johnson must rest up, says PM’s father

Boris Johnson “must rest up” after he was moved from intensive care with coronavirus, his father has said.

“He almost took one for the team and we’ve got to make sure we play properly now,”

Scientific adviser Prof Neil Ferguson, who was asked about coming out of lockdown, said it would likely “be targeted by age, by geography”.

Meanwhile, the government has launched a campaign urging people to stay at home over the Easter Bank Holiday.

Stanley Johnson spoke of his “relief” and said the whole family was “tremendously grateful” that the prime minister had been moved out of intensive care at St Thomas’ Hospital in London, adding that he thought his illness had “got the whole country to realize this is a serious event”.

“It does come close to home. It’s certainly made me feel cautious,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

He added there would have to be a “period of adjustment” before the PM returned to work in Downing Street, saying “he must rest up”.
