Mr Johnson was rushed to intensive care at St Thomas’ Hospital in central London at 7pm on Monday after he failed to overcome symptoms of Covid-19.
But the Prime Minister's temperature has now fallen as he recovers from the potentially deadly virus, reports the Times.
Mr Johnson is spending his second night in intensive care at the hospital where his condition is described as “stable”.
In a daily briefing from Downing Street, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the PM was in good spirits and breathing on his own without a ventilator.
He said: “I’m confident he’ll pull through. He will be back leading us through this crisis in short order. We know exactly what he wants from us and expects from us right now.
“I can reassure the Prime Minister, and we can reassure the public, that his team will not blink or flinch in the task ahead at this crucial moment.
“We will keep all of our focus and our resolve, with calm determination, to defeat the coronavirus.”
No10 refused to comment on reports the PM had been given four litres of oxygen when people are usually moved to ICU after 15 litres.
