Some 20,000 former NHS staff have returned to work to help the fight against coronavirus, Boris Johnson has revealed.

In a video, which the prime minister posted on Twitter, Mr Johnson thanked the doctors, nurses and other former professionals who have returned to the NHS, as well as the 750,000 members of the public who have volunteered to help the country through the pandemic.

“One thing I think the coronavirus crisis has already proved is that there really is such a thing as society,” he said.

The statement references a quote by former Conservative PM Margaret Thatcher, who famously said “there is no such thing as society”.
