British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be back at work on Monday morning telling members of his government he is “raring to go” in the fight against coronavirus, according to Downing Street.
Johnson was hospitalized for a week after catching COVID-19 himself, spending three days in intensive care and two weeks recuperating at his official country residence after his release.
Downing Street said he will be “back to his normal schedule” on Monday.
– Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced that starting on May 2 residents will be able to walk outside with people they live with and individual outdoor sports will be allowed.
“This de-escalation will be extended until we find a vaccine stopping the propagation of the virus,” said Sanchez.
As of Saturday, there have been 223,759 confirmed coronavirus cases and 22,902 deaths in the country, according to the country’s health ministry.
The de-escalation will be gradual and asymmetric, but coordinated, said Sanchez.
Starting on Sunday one parent will be able to take up to three children, up to age 14, outside for one hour.
“We started together and we will end this together,” said Sanchez.
Nevertheless, Sanchez admitted that this de-escalation will also depend on the different territories, not only between autonomous communities, but on cities and provinces.
Spain’s Congress of Deputies voted this week to extend the state of alarm to Sept. 5.
The Director of Center for Coordination of Heath Alerts and Emergency Fernando Simon said at a daily press conference that it will be very hard to get a vaccine before the end of the year.
