British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will resume work on Monday after recovering from coronavirus.

That's according to a Downing Street spokeswoman, who confirmed that the leader will take over from stand-in leader Dominic Raab, and extend clarity on UK's lockdown measures.

Johnson had been at Chequers, the prime minister's country residence, after he was released from London's St. Thomas' Hospital. He had spent three nights in intensive care unit after being admitted early in April. 

So far, the country has recorded more than 20,000 deaths from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.
