Manila Mayor and former President Joseph "Erap" Estrads has been discharged of the hospital and is even back to work, one of his aides said Saturday.

"Working na po si Mayor Erap, nakalabas na po, (thank) God," said Estrada's media relations officer Bambi Purisima.

(Mayor Erap is already back to work and has been discharged from the hospital. Thank God.)

On Friday, Estrada's son Senator JV Ejercito said his father was being confined at the Cardinal Santos Medical Center in San Juan due to pneumonia.

Estrada was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday after experiencing difficulty breathing, he said.
