Fico also announced his release from hospital on his official Facebook profile. He thanked the doctors and nurses at NÚSCH for the care provided to him and other patients, describing the institute as a top-level facility.

“Now I face recuperation,” Fico said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

“The prime minister continues to carry out his official duties and is communicating with his closest professional environment,” Fico’s spokesperson Beatrice Szabóová said.

Fico was admitted into NUSCH on April 14, eventually undergoing a heart surgery, allegedly a double bypass, on April 22.
