Former Cabinet Minister and ex-FIFA Vice President Jack Warner has been discharged from the hospital.
According to a release issued by his communications manager, Michelle Borde-Harvey, Warner was discharged from the Couva Children’s Hospital on Sunday to return to his family.
Warner contracted the virus two weeks ago and has been in the hospital since September 2.
“The worst part is over but the journey back to good health is incomplete,” said Warner who was given strict instructions to self-quarantine until September 24th to ensure he poses no threat to his family or to anyone else.
“I will also be called from time to time by the relevant official in the Ministry of Health so as ensure that I comply with all the post-hospital COVID-19 protocols,” said Warner.
“This was not a good road trip and I will be following the medical guidelines to the dot and to the tittle not simply because it is my social and legal responsibility to do so but because the discomfort, the isolation, and the pain that one goes through is not an experience that anyone will wish for another.”
He said during his period of recovery, he will remain in the shadows away from media contact.
“And this is not because of any disrespect to this profession to which I have grown to love but rather to allow me to recover undisturbed; I would truly wish that my request for silence during this period is respected.”
He thanked God for giving him a second chance and for His mercy in allowing him to unite with his family.
He also thanked his family and friends for being his source of comfort and strength along this journey and for their prayers for healing which ascended to the throne of grace and my behalf.
He said God has answered and for that, he is not only grateful but extremely thankful.
