"It's great news that the prime minister (Boris Johnson) has been discharged from hospital and is now continuing his recovery at Chequers (country house of prime minister). I hope everyone has seen his message of love and thanks to all those who've supported his recovery. And to the NHS colleagues who've cared for him so brilliantly at St Thomas' Hospital."

"Today marks a sombre day in the impact of this disease as we join the list of countries who have seen more than 10,000 deaths related to coronavirus. The fact that over 10,000 people have now lost their lives to this invisible killer demonstrates just how serious coronavirus is and why the national effort that everyone is engaged in is so important. According to the most recent figures, 282,374 people have now been tested for coronavirus. 84,279 have tested positive. Across Great Britain, the number people admitted to hospital with coronavirus symptoms is now 19,945. And of those who've contracted the virus, 10,612 have tragically died."

"The latest figures show that in Great Britain, we have 2,295 spare critical care beds, up 150 from yesterday. So throughout this crisis, with all the challenges that we've been dealing with, all the operational difficulties and all of the logistics, we have always been able to provide the very best of care to everybody who needs it, through the NHS. At the start of this crisis, people said that the NHS would be overwhelmed. And we've seen that (corrects) and we've seen the risk of that. Elsewhere, but not here."

"This (temporary hospitals) critical expansion is partly because we have a record number of ventilators - 9,775 - and partly because we have record numbers of returners coming back and rejoining the NHS. Over 5,000 former staff are now back on the NHS frontline and over 36,000 have come forward to enlist."
