Former President Pranab Mukherjee continues to be treated for lung infection and is on ventilator support, a medical bulletin from the Army’s Research and Referral Hospital said on Friday.
His vital parameters are being maintained, and he is haemodynamically stable, the hospital statement said a day after it said that the former president was responding to the treatment for lung infection.
Mukherjee was admitted to the hospital on 10 August where he underwent surgery for a brain clot. He had also tested positive for Covid-19, a condition that he had made public on Twitter. After the surgery, he was declared to be in a coma, and on ventilator support. His condition had deteriorated early this week after a lung infection but on Thursday, doctors had reported that the 84-year old was responding to treatment.
