According to hospital officials, the 45-year-old Rowley woke up Tuesday at Salisbury Hospital in London, with “small but significant improvement”.

Report also said Rowley was still in critical but stable condition since he was exposed to the poison.

“Charlie is still very unwell,” the hospital said.

Rowley, along with his partner, 44-year-old Dawn Sturgess, were on June 30 at a home in Amesbury, London, exposed to Novichok — a military-grade nerve agent produced in the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

Sturgess died on Sunday, leaving behind her three children, as authorities quickly launched an investigation into her death.

Police have said their working theory is that the couple’s exposure to the poison was linked to a recent attack on ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

Skripal, a former Russian intelligence officer once convicted in his homeland of spying for Britain, was attacked with Novichok at his home in Salisbury, a city roughly 10 miles south of Amesbury, where his daughter had been visiting him.
