(LEX 18) — Kentucky native and virus expert, Dr. Joseph Fair, says he's out of the hospital after battling COVID-19.

He was hospitalized for six days before being released on Sunday.

Dr. Fair is a Knott County native and contributer to NBC News.

He says he took many precautions during a recent trip to New Orleans but he probably caught the virus because his eyes were exposed.

Dr. Fair wants to thank everyone for all of the prayers and support.
