Testing failures and a rising death toll: Johnson is expected to address questions over the UK’s failure to reach its own target for coronavirus testing and a rising death count from the virus. The deadline to reach a government-set target of 100,000 daily tests is expected to be missed on Thursday with the latest figures showing only 52,000 tests administered per day as of Tuesday.
Johnson returned to work on Monday, after becoming the first world leader to fall ill with coronavirus in March.
The UK has seen more than 26,000 deaths due to coronavirus, and has recorded more than 166,000 cases, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.
Busy few months for Johnson: Johnson is set for an unusually busy few months in office -- the 55-year-old and his fiancée Carrie Symonds, 32, welcomed a baby boy on Wednesday morning, a spokesperson for the "thrilled" couple announced.
