Coronavirus: Carrie Symonds joins ‘Clap For Our Carers’ as Boris Johnson moves out intensive care

Boris Johnson’s pregnant fiancee Carrie Symonds has paid her own tribute to NHS workers – just moments after it was revealed the prime minister had moved out of intensive care.

Ms Symonds joined Britons up and down the country as they once again applauded those battling coronavirus on the front line.

For the third Thursday evening in a row, people across the UK stepped out onto their doorsteps and balconies, or hung out of windows, to take part in the “#ClapForOurCarers” campaign.

The evening’s national applause took place shortly after Downing Street announced Mr Johnson was no longer receiving critical care at St Thomas’ Hospital in London – where he was admitted due to his coronavirus symptoms persisting.

Number 10 said the prime minister will now receive “close monitoring” from his NHS team “during the early phase of his recovery”.

Ms Symonds, who works for an ocean conservation charity, tweeted a series of clapping emojis shortly after 8pm on Thursday.

She also posted a picture of a rainbow, which has come to symbolise the nation’s thanks for NHS workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
