MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican businessman Carlos Slim, one of the world’s richest men, has returned home from hospital following a bout of COVID-19 and is feeling well, his spokesman Arturo Elias said on Saturday.
During the past week, Slim had been getting medical attention at the National Institute of Nutrition, a public health center in Mexico City.
Slim’s son, Carlos Slim Domit, revealed on Monday that the telecoms magnate had caught the coronavirus, and was making a good recovery from what he said were mild symptoms.
Spokesman Elias, who is also Slim’s son-in-law, said the 81-year-old had returned home on Thursday, and was “very well.” Thursday was also Slim’s birthday.
Slim is Mexico’s wealthiest man. His family controls America Movil (NYSE:), the largest telecommunications provider in Latin America, as well as a host of other businesses.
