Pranab Mukherjee still critical, shows no improvement in health

Former President of India, Pranab Mukherjee’s health condition remains unchanged and he continues to be on ventilator support at the Army hospital in Delhi. Pranab Mukherjee is still critical after he underwent brain surgery on Monday.

In an update on Saturday morning, the Army Research and Referral Hospital in Delhi said, “The condition of Hon’ble Shri Pranab Mukherjee remains unchanged this morning. He continues to be on ventilatory support. His vital and clinical parameters remain stable and are being closely monitored by a team of specialists.”

Before undergoing brain surgery to remove a blood clot, Pranab Mukherjee had also tested positive for coronavirus the same day. The 84-year-old former President’s health has not worsened further but he remains critical still.

Pranab Mukherjee’s daughter Sharmistha Mukherjee said on Friday night, “Without getting into medical jargons, whatever I could understand from the last two days is that though my dads’ condition continues to remain very critical, it hasn’t worsened. There’s little improvement in his eyes’ reaction to light.”
