Indiana governor discharged from hospital after treatment for pneumonia


INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has returned home after being hospitalized for treatment for pneumonia, his office said Saturday.

Holcomb, 54, was diagnosed with pneumonia after seeing a doctor on Thursday, believing he had the flu, according to his publicist, Erin Murphy.

“Out of an abundance of caution, he was admitted to hospital and is responding well to treatment,” Murphy said in a statement released Friday.

In a statement on Saturday, she said Holcomb had been released and was resting at home.

Holcomb was scheduled to travel to southern Indiana for an awards show on Friday, but the governor’s office announced Thursday morning without explanation that the event had been postponed for a week.
