The Daily Telegraph newspaper had reported that the prime minister was planning for a return on Monday but the spokesperson declined the speculations mentioning that the pm has been doing more this week as he spoke with US President Donald Trump.

"He is continuing his recovery at Chequers. He continues to receive updates from Number 10 (Downing Street) on the coronavirus response and to speak with his colleagues," the spokesman said. "He was only discharged from hospital less than two weeks ago and he did have to spend some time in an intensive care unit, so as you'd expect he will want to have medical advice before he returns to work in Number 10."
