The author Michael Rosen, who has written several children's books, including "We are hunting for bears", left the intensive care unit after 47 days.

Mr. Rosen was admitted to the North London Whittington Hospital last March after suffering from coronavirus-like symptoms and was sent to the intensive care unit on March 29 after his health deteriorated.

His wife Emma-Louise Williams tweeted on Saturday that the two-time winner of the children's award winner has left the intensive care unit and will continue his recovery in the infirmary.

However, it was not confirmed whether the author was actually suffering from coronavirus, and Mr. Rosen confirmed in March that the flu might be severe.

Ms. Williams, who works as a radio producer, published on Twitter: "Today Michael … has been in the hospital for eight weeks and I am very happy to say that he left the intensive care unit yesterday after a long and difficult 47 days.

& # 39; His recovery continues on the ward and will take some time.

"He did it so well, but please don't expect him here (on Twitter) yet."

Mr. Rosen's wife also tweeted from her husband's account and praised the "gracious" NHS staff at Whittington Hospital for their "amazing efforts".

Mr. Rosen's wife, Emma-Louise Williams, tweeted the news that her husband had left the intensive care unit and also thanked the NHS staff from the author's own Twitter account

On March 22, the author complained about his illness on social media and tweeted: “I cannot prevent my thermostat from falling: icy hands, hot head. Ice cold sweat. Under the covers for groundbreaking shakes. Image of a war hero biting a handkerchief while the best buddy dives live charcoal into the wound to cauterize it. & # 39;

A day later, with the following Twitter post, he seemed to be asking himself if he was suffering from COVID-19: “I had no chest pain. No persistent cough. So it could have been severe flu all the time and not a corona. Today the fever subsides. In their place, deep muscle exhaustion. In every corner. & # 39;

Mr. Rosen, who won the children's award in 2007 and 2009, also wrote the children's novel Little Rabbit Foo Foo.

He also wrote a poem about the NHS in 2008 that started: "These are the hands / Those that touch us first / Feel your head / Find the pulse / And make your bed."
