Dr Mahathir Mohamad today said he has recovered sufficiently to be allowed to return home during the day from the National Heart Institute.

A spokesperson said that Dr Mahathir was allowed “home leave” between 8am and 4pm.

However, the nonagenarian said he has not recovered completely from his recent ailment that saw him being admitted to the IJN on January 20.

“I would like to inform everyone that I have recovered, not fully, and have been returning home during the day.

“I will then return to the hospital in the evening as there are still some procedures to be done,” he said in a short one-minute 15-second video message.

The Langkawi MP looked frail but walked unaided in the video.

A statement issued by his office said the former prime minister was allowed to return home during the day beginning February 2. – TMI
