One of the first infected with coronavirus in Galicia has been discharged this Thursday at the Vithas Fátima hospital in Vigo, where he was admitted on May 5 and spent 40 days in the ICU, plus another 17 in the ward.
Cardenio, a 70-year-old resident of Vigo, is probably the first non-imported case of Covid-19 infection in Vigo, sources at the hospital center point to Efe.
He was admitted due to possible pneumonia – he presents previous pathologies – and his positive was one of the first confirmed in Galicia, and among the first hundred in Spain.
His wife was also admitted to the Vithas Fátima Hospital but did not go through the ICU, the sources detail.
There are currently only one patient in the ICU of this hospital, plus another six on the ward.
After being discharged after failing two PCR tests, Cardenio has been dismissed with a standing ovation by staff from all categories of the hospital.
In addition, he received a motivational message signed by all the staff who attended him directly, and one of the personal health advisers dedicated an alalá to him, a traditional Galician composition, specially written for the occasion.
