The Prime Minister is recovering and reading the Tintin books he read during childhood while he recuperates in hospital
Boris Johnson has told friends that he owes his life to doctors and nurses at St Thomas’ Hospital, where he was treated in intensive care for coronavirus.
The Prime Minister said his care had been “exemplary”, adding: “I can’t thank them enough.” Now well enough to sit up and read in bed, Mr Johnson has been revisiting the Tintin books, which he first devoured as a child.
POLITICS360 understands that the books were sent to the Prime Minister’s bedside by his family, as Carrie Symonds, his pregnant fianceé, wrote to him daily, when he was still too unwell to read texts and WhatsApp messages. She included the latest scan of the couple’s unborn baby and printouts of pictures of NHS staff across the country wishing Mr Johnson well.
