TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) – Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez will soon be discharged from hospital as he has demonstrated clear improvement, one of his doctors said on Thursday, after the leader fell ill from coronavirus.

“Over the last few days he has gradually presented clear improvement in his general condition, with a decrease in respiratory symptoms and a significant decrease in inflammation,” said Alicia Jimenez, a doctor at the military hospital where Hernandez was being treated.
