In the 10 second clip posted on his Twitter a short while ago, Tapia is seen reading a local newspaper at his desk.
He spins around and says, “I’m back”.
In November Tapia, who is in his first stint as US/Jamaica ambassador, travelled to the US for medical treatment.
The US Embassy had made the announcement via a statement in response to media reports of Tapia being hospitalised locally.
The embassy did not disclose the nature of Tapia’s ailment but indicated that it was “non-life-threatening”.
There is no indication if Tapia will serve another term under the current US administration when the Biden/Harris regime begins.
