Boris Johnson’s return: another sign of hope

Here’s another turning point: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson went back to work Monday after having been hit hard by the coronavirus — easily the most senior world leader to be sidelined by the bug.

Hospitalized back on April 5, Johnson spent weeks in intensive care, then took weeks more to regain enough strength to return to his desk at 10 Downing St. At 55, he’s not in the highest-risk age group, but his full recovery is still a promising sign.

With Britain not yet clearly past its pandemic peak, Johnson still held out hope for his countrymen in remarks Monday, noting, “We are now beginning to turn the tide” as his aides promised more details on relaxing the UK lockdown by week’s end.

Hey, he got Brexit done. He’ll manage this, too.
