Actor Jordi Sánchez, popular for his role as Antonio Recio in the series La que se avecina , has received the medical discharge after almost a month and a half admitted to the hospital after his health deteriorated when he was infected with coronavirus . The 56-year-old Catalan interpreter, who spent several weeks in critical condition in the ICU, has shared his first image on his social networks after leaving the hospital and wanted to thank everyone for the support and affection received.
“ Immensely grateful to the Fundación Jiménez Diaz University Hospital. Thank you for your talent, your care, your patience … Thank you for getting me out of this. I never thought that sleeping 24 days in a row, with its 24 nights, could be so unpleasant. Thanks to all those messages from friends and colleagues, who are so exciting and helpful when they wake you up. And thanks to all those people who, without knowing me at all, have sent me their love. You are an immense gift, dear followers. A big hug for everyone, ”Sánchez wrote in Spanish and Catalan along with a photograph where he is seen in Madrid's Plaza de Santa Ana, very warm, wearing a mask and with a notable loss of weight.
It was on February 6 when the actor's family confirmed his hospitalization for covid-19 , hours after the news leaked. "Jordi is evolving favorably and they hope to be able to report very soon on his full recovery," they said at the time. After spending several weeks in the ICU, it was not until March 9 that the interpreter's relatives were able to announce that he was “out of danger.”
The displays of affection towards the actor have not ceased since his condition was made public. Both his followers and his friends and colleagues have sent him messages of support and encouragement. "He is very strong and he is going to get out of this," the actress and comedian Silvia Abril , who has worked with Sánchez in several films, acknowledged to this newspaper. Fernando Tejero , his partner in the successful television series, celebrated on Tuesday on his Instagram that he had been able to speak with his partner: “Very happy he has made me listen to my dear colleague Jordi Sánchez giving me the news that after this setback, he Finds already recovered, thanks to life. I love you friend. ”
