He is quoted as saying
“I leave the 14 Military Hospital this morning after having been declared free of the deadly COVID-19 virus.”
“I leave behind a team of trained, professional, dedicated selfless and above all, patriotic health workers. I wish to thank the doctors, who went beyond the call of duty, consistent with their Hippocratic Oath, to ensure the proper treatment and care for me. I wish to thank the nurses, the respiratory technicians, psychosocial therapists, support staff (janitors, caterers) and other technicians serving at the hospital, who so selflessly assisted in the course of my treatment and care. The team is doing such a wonderful job. They are miracle workers. I certainly cannot thank them enough.”
Mr. Dean is one of Liberia's top government officials to have contracted the virus.
Information Minister, Lenn Eugene Nagbe was also diagnosed with the virus as well as Deputy Police Director, Sadatu Reeves.
