Daily Mail reported that the 42-year-old medic appeared at the Wuhan's Taikang Tongji Hospital on Monday, October 26, after resting at home for over five months.

A video released by Hubei Today showed the medic looking like his old self, in good spirits, and a face mask.

According to reports, Fan visited the facility to thank the doctor, Wang Chen, who saved his life.

The clip showed Fan saying 'thank you' to Chen who was an academician specialised in respiratory diseases and critical care.

Here's what Fan had to say to journalists:

"Academician Wang is my saviour. I need to thank him for sure."

Another medic who contracted the disease at the same time as Fan was identified as Hu Weifeng. Hu also suffered the skin colour change while he received treatment, but died unfortunately after fighting the disease for nearly five months.
