Liverpool’s ‘Legend’ Kenny Dalglish was discharged after four days in hospital
The 69-year-old former football player had been admitted to the hospital on Wednesday, only to be later found to be infected with the new coronavirus, despite being “asymptomatic”.
Kenny Dalglish told the Scottish newspaper Sunday Post that health professionals were “fantastic”.
“We are very lucky to have them. People may think that my name has allowed me to get the best care, but all patients at the National Health Service receive the best care, “he said.
After ‘shining’ at Celtic, it was at Liverpool that the former striker, 102 times international for Scotland (30 goals), stood out the most, with six English championships and three European Cups, before winning the English League, also as coach for the reds and Blackburn Rovers.
The new coronavirus, responsible for the covid-19 pandemic, has already caused more than 107,000 deaths and infected more than 1.7 million people in 193 countries and territories. Almost 345 thousand are considered cured.
After appearing in China in December, the outbreak spread worldwide, prompting the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare a pandemic situation.
The United States is the country with the highest number of deaths, accounting for 20,071 to date, and the one with more infections, with close to 520,000 confirmed cases.
