Jack Warner has recovered from COVID-19, after testing negative for the virus.
The former ILP Leader confirmed this on a post to his Facebook page Saturday.
Mr Warner was initially hospitalized after contracting the virus, but was later discharged to continue his recovery at home.
In his post, Warner said that September 24, 2020 is the day he will never forget.
He said “Most people celebrate birthdays and anniversaries; some even celebrate holidays but for me September 24 will not just be the reason to celebrate our Republic Day because it was on that day, I was truly granted by God a second lease in life and for that I am truly grateful.
I will always remember how on the evening of September 24, I walked nervously into the hospital to be swabbed and tested a second time for the dreaded COVID-19 virus and now I can truly say that God has been good to me, that he has been gracious towards me and for that I will celebrate as an act of being perpetually grateful; I am now NEGATIVE.”
Warner thanked his family and loved ones and also gave specific shout out to the medical fraternity.
“I want to say thanks to the doctors and nurses who through these trying times sought to ensure that I was comfortable. I am not the easiest of persons to deal with especially when I am sick but for their patience and tolerance towards me during this period, I wish to express my profound thanks to the medical fraternity of our country.”
To my friends who never failed to remind me of their love and commitment, who encouraged me to get better, who offered up prayers for my healing and who never failed to text me with words of reassurance and support, to you I say a special thanks; I will never forget the way you inspired me to get better.
These were tough times, trying times; times when you know who are your friends and my employees at Sunshine Today, the Centre of Excellence as well Emerald Apts and Plaza who went beyond the call of duty I wish to say that I am proud of every single one of you who stood with me during these trying times and to all of you I say many thanks.
To my Sunshine Palace All Fours Team; my drinking and liming partners this post Covid-19 period is not going to be business as usual for me simply because it cannot be business as usual. I thank you for your kindness and I know you will understand.
