British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is undergoing “small” sinus surgery

LONDON: The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson he underwent “light” sinus surgery on Monday and returned to his office on Downing Street to recover, his spokesman said.
Johnson was admitted to hospital London around 6 a.m. local time on Monday for a routine procedure at the National Health Service (NHS) related to his sinuses and was briefly under general anesthesia.
While he takes a day off to recover, Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab will chair all the “important decisions” needed before Johnson returns to work on Tuesday.
“It was a minor routine operation involving his sinuses … He returned to Downing Street shortly after 10 a.m. (local time),” a Downing Street spokesman said.
The nose operation is said to have been “scheduled for some time” and both Raab and the UK cabinet secretary Simon Case were aware of his time.
Johnson’s sinus problem is not thought to be linked to his COVID-19 illness in 2020, when he had to spend several days in the intensive care unit of a London hospital.
Johnson is due to chair the weekly cabinet meeting on Tuesday and is still expected to travel to Kigali, Rwanda, later this week for a meeting of British Community Heads of Government (CHOGM).
