Reports said it was Johnson’s newfound exercise routine after being spotted twice in a row in an effort to steer clear of Covid-19 post-recovery, blaming obesity for his hospitalization. He told The Sun that his health “had deteriorated to an extent” during his personal battle with the disease for nearly two weeks, and it served as a wake-up call to convince citizens to live more active lives.
