‘Call me Boris’: Nurse’s father glad United Kingdom leader had good care

‘Call me Boris’: Nurse’s father glad United Kingdom leader had good care

The public comments from the Prime Minister yesterday could be the last for a number of days as he prepares to head to his country residence, Chequers in Buckinghamshire, to convalesce.

Johnson, 55, was admitted to London's St. Thomas' Hospital on April 5 after "persistent" COVID-19 symptoms. "It really wasn't until he was out of intensive care until she actually told us", her mother Caroline told TVNZ.

Downing Street confirmed his release from hospital in a brief statement, adding that he will continue to convalesce at Chequers, the PM's country retreat.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson left hospital on Sunday (12 April) and thanked staff for saving his life from COVID-19, but his government was forced to defend its response to the coronavirus outbreak as the national death toll passed 10,000.

Heralding the "personal courage" of everyone from doctors to cooks, he mentioned by name the nurses who watched over him all night while he fought severe coronavirus symptoms in intensive care - Jenny from New Zealand and also Luis from Portugal. "And I think the prime minister should give her some form of medal because of the work she does", he told Sky News.

Speaking to media on Monday, Ardern said she had "reached out" to McGee using a "very informal tactic" - searching for her via Facebook and sending her a message.

Mr Johnson's fiancée Carrie Symonds, who is pregnant with their first child, thanked the staff at London's St Thomas's Hospital and hailed the "magnificent NHS".

Mr Johnson spoke to Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab - who is now in charge of running the government - over the weekend, No 10 added.

Mike and Caroline McGee, parents of Jenny McGee, the nurse from Invercargill who treated British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the ICU unit at St Thomas' Hospital in London. "But she has told us these things over the years and it doesn't matter what patient she is looking after, this is what she does".

"She said she had just had a most surreal time in her life, something she will never forget".

Ms McGee is from Invercargill, on New Zealand's South Island. "For me, this is very upsetting because we had set this preparation process in place, as I say, back in 2006".

Her family had believed she may have been nursing Mr Johnson, however she did not confirm it until she was outed during the leader's thank you message.

Nurse Pitarma has already received a call from Portuguese President, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, to "thank him personally for his work and vigilance".

"Why we didn't respond so much sooner once this epidemic broke out in China, I simply don't know", Sir David, who advised the United Kingdom government between 2000 and 2007, said.
