Former Dublin hurler Michael Carton took to Twitter on his release from hospital COVID-19 free

Michael Carton recovers from COVID-19 diagnosis

Two weeks ago, former Dublin Senior Hurler Michael Carton was admitted to the Mater Hospital. The O’Tooles club man had been self isolating for a few days at his home. With some flu like systems, Carton was eventually diagnosed with the COVID-19 strain of the Coronavirus.

Michael spent days in the Dublin city hospital. He spoke to Ireland AM during this time to give an important message. At the time the virus was only growing in numbers.

And Last Tuesday, Carton was discharged from the Mater after doctors were happy that he was free after promising blood results.

Yesterday, Michael took to Twitter to to express his thanks to the doctors and staff that were responsible for his care.

“I tested positive again in hospital. But once I reached 14 days after my first symptoms and I was completely symptom free I was discharged (the doctors were happy with my blood results).”

“I’m very grateful to the staff in the mater hospital. Most of the nurses looking after me weren’t from that ward. So they were working with a new team in really hazardous conditions doing their very best #frontlinestaff.”

“I’d just like to thank everyone again. I’ve never been too emotional but I was overwhelmed by all the messages from everybody to me and all my family from all walks of life.”

“My energy levels still aren’t great but improving every day so thanks again #staysafe #supporteachother.”
