Many people have been in intensive care and then come out of it again, and ConservativeHome sends every good wish and prayer to the Prime Minister and his family.

Today, we are holding over our usual column, comment piece and local government column.  It somehow doesn’t seem quite right today to run them this morning, but we hope and expect to be back to normal tomorrow.

However, we will publish Andy Street’s report on the Coronavirus and the West Midlands mid-morning, and Andrew Gimson will be writing about prime ministers and illnesses later today.

We will also run some of the best wishes that prominent figures are sending to the Prime Minister in a separate item, and bring you news, analysis and comment as and when necessary.  Our daily newslinks will of course run as usual.
