After a 22-day stint in the hospital battling symptoms associated with COVID-19, legendary English singer/musician Marianne Faithfull is home resting and recuperating from her ordeal.

Faithfull’s social media channels provided the good news to fans on Wednesday evening, making special emphasis on thanking the members of the NHS (the U.K.’s National Health Service) for their help in saving her life.

We are really happy to say that Marianne has been discharged from hospital today, 22 days after being admitted suffering from the symptoms of Covid-19. She will continue to recuperate in London.

Marianne thanks you all for your kind messages of concern which have meant a great deal through what is a such a difficult time for so many. She is also very grateful to all the NHS staff who cared for her at the hospital and, without doubt, saved her life..

The Guardian reported that Marianne Faithfull, 73, was admitted to the hospital in early April, eventually developing pneumonia, at which point her management stated she was “stable and responding to treatment.”

Faithfull has had a bit of a rough stretch as far as health is concerned over the past 15 years, as the Guardian summarized:

In 2006, Faithfull was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent successful surgery. In 2007, she announced she had hepatitis C, diagnosed 12 years previously. She also has arthritis, and has had other joint issues, including a hip injury that became infected after surgery, forcing her to cancel a 2015 tour.

Given all she’s been through, it’s fantastic news to hear that she’s back home recovering from this fight with COVID-19. All the best, Marianne!

In a toast to her, stream Marianne Faithfull’s most recent album, 2018’s Negative Capability, below.
