Mufti spends 10th day in AIIMS

The condition of Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, who was admitted to Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of AIIMS last week, is “critical but stable”.
79-year-old Sayeed was airlifted to Delhi from Srinagar on December 24 after he complained of exhaustion.
An AIIMS spokesperson said the Chief Minister, who has a history of fever and neck pain, was diagnosed as having “decreased blood counts, pneumonia and sepsis.”
Sayeed was on high dosage of antibiotics for treatment of infection and oxygen to provide relief to lungs, the spokesman said.
“His condition is being monitored continuously in ICU. His condition continues to be critical but stable,” the spokesman said.
Hospital sources said that Sayeed was administered blood transfusion since last night after his condition, which had shown some signs of improvement during the day yesterday, worsened during the night.
An official spokesman said Chief Minister, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, who is admitted in All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), is responding well to the treatment and is absolutely stable.
He stated that a team of senior faculty of AIIMS is monitoring the treatment of the Chief Minister. “The condition of the Chief Minister is absolutely stable and it will take some time for him to recover fully,” he added.
Mufti Sayeed, after extensive tour of Srinagar city on December 22, had complained of exhaustion. On doctors’ advice, he was shifted to New Delhi for a thorough medical checkup.
Meanwhile, Governor N N Vohra, who has been in touch with Mehbooba Mufti ever since Mufti Sayeed fell ill, visited AIIMS today afternoon.
Besides discussions with the concerned doctors, the Governor met Begum Mufti and Mehbooba Mufti before returning to Jammu this evening.
