Nawaz condition improving but cannot resend back to jail:  say PIMS medics



ISLAMABAD, July 31 (TNS): Doctors at Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) on Tuesday said former premier Nawaz Sharif’s health is improving.

Rejecting news reports that the former premier has been shifted from the hospital back to Adiala jail, where he is currently incarcerated for corruption, the doctors said Nawaz’s blood tests will be conducted again.

On Monday night, Nawaz’s sugar, blood pressure and ECG (electrocardiogram) were not normal which is why all tests will be conducted again today, the doctors said.

PIMS Head of Cardiology Dr Naeem Malik along with his three-member team will conduct Nawaz’s check-up again.

The decision to shift Nawaz back to Adiala jail depends on his health, the doctors said.

However, they added that he may require constant monitoring for four to five days.

A complete report regarding the former premier’s health will be forwarded to the concerned authorities, they added.
