Boris Johnson Leaves Hospital and Thanks the NHS and Two Nurses by Name and Country


…In an emotional five-minute video, Mr. Johnson thanked the country’s National Health Service, declaring it had “saved my life, no question.”

Wearing a suit and tie, but looking and sounding fatigued, Mr. Johnson singled out two nurses…Jenny from New Zealand and Luis from Portugal, who were at his bedside during the frightening overnight hours. “The reason in the end my body did start to get enough oxygen was because for every second of the night they were watching and they were thinking and they were caring and making the interventions I needed.”

Mr. Johnson will convalesce at Chequers for some time…he will not be immediately returning to work but will “soon be able to sign off on major decisions.”

He said: “Stay Home. Protect the N.H.S.  Save Lives.”
