Thank you.", he added.
He also gave gratitude to the people who cared for him during his hospitalization, "I am grateful to the medical staff who treated and cared for me in spite of the risk of infection," he said.
At the end, he gave precautions, "Wash your hands and don't forget to wear a mask when you go out, and finish work as soon as possible."
