As per recent reports, it has been revealed that Canada's Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. David Butler-Jones, who suffered a stroke a few days ago, is stated to be in recovering state.
In a statement given out this Monday by The Public Health Agency of Canada, it has been reported that Dr. Butler-Jones had a stroke in early May. However, since he has been recovering, he has returned to his work.
In an interview, Canada’s top doctor, said “He was never fully off work because his reasoning and mental capacity were not diminished by the stroke. He described the stroke as small”.
Moreover, he emphasized that day by day, he is increasing his hours of work, so as to adapt quickly with the daily routine. However, the doctor affirmed that he is still weak from left side, so he uses a cane that majorly supports him.
However, he exaggerated that he is very lucky that his stroke was minor, else even he doesn’t know, how he would have handled. However, the agency has not detailed regarding the type of stroke suffered by the Chief or even regarding his illness.
However, the agency did notify that Dr. Jones has not suffered from any kind of speech problem, but still he is undergoing treatment for stroke-related problems.
