Plácido Domingo has been discharged from the hospital in Acapulco.

The tenor, who was hospitalized on March 28, was discharged and is stable at home according to the Health Secretary in Guerrero.

his publicist stated, “After a week in the hospital, he was released to continue the treatment at home in isolation. He has been responding well and will continue following the doctors orders.“

Domingo announced on Facebook a week ago that he had tested positive for COVID-19 stating, “I feel it is my moral duty to announce to you that I have tested positive for COVID19, the Coronavirus. My Family and I are all in self isolation for as long as it is deemed medically necessary. Currently we are all in good health but I experienced fever and cough symptoms therefore deciding to get tested and the result came back positive.”

Domingo thanked his fans stating “I’m very grateful and moved by the outpour of messages that I have received from so many people. Thank you very much from all my heart.”

He also advised audiences to stay at home.

Official statement.

Dear friends,

a lot of confusing and incorrect information about my current health condition has been circulated in social networks and in the press.
I am at home and I feel fine.
Fortunately from the very first symptom I was, as usual, under medical supervision, given my age and my comorbidity, therefore the COVID19 infection was immediately suspected and this helped me a lot.
Now I continue my therapy and rest.
My thoughts right now are with those who suffer and with all those who are generously working to save lives.

I thank everyone for your affection and once again I recommend everyone to stay safe at home.

See you soon.
