Urgent decisions are temporarily dealt with by Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab. Johnson is expected to return to work tomorrow, June 21.
On the morning of Monday, June 20, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson underwent a minor elective sinus surgery under general anesthesia in a London clinic. This was reported by the BBC.
The operation was carried out at 6 a.m. Kyiv time, and at 10 a.m. he returned to Downing Street.
Representatives of the British government reported that temporarily all urgent decisions will be headed by Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab. It is specified that the return of the British Prime Minister to work will depend on the general state of health. But according to plans, Johnson will preside over the ministerial meeting as early as Tuesday morning.
The operation was reportedly successful and not related to the coronavirus infection.
In the spring of 2020, Johnson spent three days in intensive care, where he was treated for a coronavirus infection. Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab was then also temporarily responsible for all government decisions.
