A spokesman for the British Prime Ministry confirmed on Saturday that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will return to work next Monday.
Johnson was recovering from a coronavirus infection in his country house, after spending three days in intensive care early this month.
On Friday, British Health Secretary Matt Hancock said that Johnson was in good shape and was recovering after suffering Covid 19, likely to return to work as soon as his doctors recommended it.
The Johnson government faces harsh criticism for its limited ability to carry out tests on corona, the failure to provide health workers with enough personal protective supplies to protect them from disease, and the authorities have been slower to impose general isolation than their counterparts in Europe.
Britain is approaching the threshold of twenty thousand deaths from Covid-19 disease and may reach it later in the day, when adding the daily toll to the total number of people who died from the new coronavirus in the country.
The death toll of Covid-19 in UK hospitals increased Friday by 684 deaths within 24 hours, bringing the total to 19506.
Britain had the fifth highest official death toll from the virus in the world after the United States, Italy, Spain and France.
The total number of deaths is likely to increase in thousands once the outcome includes deaths in elderly homes.
