Boris Johnson was responding to treatment and described as “clinically stable” after a third night at a London hospital in a statement on Wednesday.

Downing Street said that Mr Johnson continued to be under critical care more than two weeks after revealing that he had tested positive.

On Wednesday it was announced another 936 people with the virus had passed away, taking the UK death toll overall to 9,172.

The 55-year-old British leader has received oxygen support in intensive care but was not put on a ventilator and his designated deputy, Dominic Raab, the Foreign Secretary, said he would soon be back at the helm as the world faces one of its gravest public health crisis in a century.
