After being hospitalized for five days for pneumonia associated with the coronavirus, the Buenos Aires Chief of Cabinet, Felipe Miguel, announced this Thursday that he was released from the hospital and that he will now return home to continue his recovery.
“I was discharged and I’m going home with my family to finish my recovery. Thank you all for the good energy and love. Let’s move on!”, He wrote on his Twitter account.
Miguel had tested positive for coronavirus on Saturday, May 22. After several days locked up at home, with fever and cough, his doctors advised him to hospitalize him since in the controls he appeared a mild pneumonia associated with the coronavirus that caused him problems in oxygen saturation.
