THE British Mallorca resident who contracted the coronavirus during a stay in a French ski station has expressed his gratitude to the Balearic Island health authorities for the treatment he received.
Now back at home, the ex-pat patient sent a thank you letter to the Son Espases Hospital where he presented himself voluntarily after finding out he had been in contact with a person infected with the new pathogen.
After two positive results in the tests carried out to see if he was carrying the coronavirus, he tested negative twice which meant he was able to leave the hospital last Friday, seven days after he was admitted.
“I’m pleased to confirm that I have been discharged from Son Espases Hospital, am in good health and happy to be at home”, he wrote in the letter published on the health facility’s social media accounts on Tuesday.
“All of our ski group, including the 11 in England and France, have recovered quickly from the virus. We all experienced mild symptoms and required minimal medical treatment during our time in isolation. We understand the virus can be dangerous for some, but we also want to share the important facts of our own situation to help reassure people”, he stressed.
He continued, “I would like to offer my thanks to all the staff at Son Espases who have supported me and my family in many ways during our time at the hospital. Equally thank you to all those in the health service and related organisations in Mallorca and the mainland.
“Thanks finally for the support I have received from family, friends and the public. I am very grateful to all of you.
He ended, “I’d like to ask for the continued respect of my and my family’s privacy.”
