Boris Johnson says he is in "good spirits" after spending the night in hospital with coronavirus.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
The PM was taken to St Thomas' Hospital in London on Sunday evening with "persistent symptoms" - including a temperature and a cough - for routine tests.
He remains in charge of government, although Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab chaired Monday's coronavirus meeting.
Mr Johnson, 55, tested positive for coronavirus 10 days ago.
In a tweet, he said he was "keeping in touch with my team as we work together to fight this virus and keep everyone safe".
He also thanked the "brilliant NHS staff" taking care of him and other patients, adding: "You are the best of Britain".
The prime minister's official spokesman said he remained in hospital "under observation", and described Russian reports that Mr Johnson had been placed on a ventilator as "disinformation".
He is continuing to receive updates and briefings in hospital, the spokesman added.
