Former Indian President Pranab Mukherjee’s son Abhijit Mukherjee today tweeted that his father is doing “much better and stable than the preceding days” and he is responding well to treatment at a hospital in New Delhi.
“All his vital parameters are stable & he is responding to treatment! We firmly believe that he will be back among us soon,” Abhijit said in the Twitter post.
The Army Research and Referral Hospital, where the 84-year-old former president is admitted and underwent a brain surgery for a removal of a clot, said today that Mukherjee’s medical condition remained unchanged.
In a statement, the hospital said Mukherjee remained on ventilatory support.
“He has multiple old co-morbidities. His vital and clinical parameters remain stable and are being closely monitored by a team of specialists,” it added.
Pranab Mukherjee had to undergo the “life-saving” brain surgery last week after he suffered a fall at his Rajaji Marg residence last Sunday.
He also tested Covid-19 positive.
