Georgetown basketball coach and NBA legend Patrick Ewing was released from the hospital and is now recovering from COVID-19 at home, his son said in a Twitter post on Monday.

Ewing announced he had tested positive for the deadly virus and was isolating in a local hospital last week. 

“I want to share that I have tested positive for COVID-19. This virus is serious and should not be taken lightly,” Ewing said in a statement at the time. “I want to encourage everyone to stay safe and take care of yourselves and your loved ones. Now more than ever, I want to thank the healthcare workers and everyone on the front lines. I’ll be fine and we will all get through this.”

On Monday, Patrick Ewing Jr. gave thanks to the doctors and hospital staff who assisted his father during his stay. "My father is now home and getting better," he said. "We'll continue to watch his symptoms and follow the CDC guidelines."

"Love this," former Georgetown player Roy Hibbert tweeted.
