Nawaz’s latest medical report says Covid-19 could be fatal for ex-PM

LAHORE: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s latest medical report has recommended that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader should avoid going outside as he could contract the coronavirus which could prove to be fatal for him.

The PML-N supremo’s latest medical reports were submitted to the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday by his lawyer Amjad Pervez in which doctors have suggested the three-time former prime minister avoid going outside due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Nawaz, who is undergoing treatment in London, is said to be suffering from unstable platelet levels, diabetes, heart, kidney and blood pressure related ailments, and his heart is not getting an adequate supply of blood, according to the report.

Doctors have also instructed Nawaz to continue with his physical activities and keep consulting medical experts.

The medical report added that doctors are aware of his current health condition.

Nawaz’s health deteriorated in October 2019 while he was in the custody of the National Accountability Bureau when his platelets count dropped abnormally.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on October 26 heard the petitions of Al-Azizia reference for suspension of bail on emergency grounds and granted him an interim on medical and humanitarian grounds.

The federal government had stipulated an indemnity bond for Nawaz to go abroad for treatment, which was lifted by the Lahore High Court. The court had allowed the PML-N leader to go abroad for four weeks based on his affidavit, after which he left for London on November 19 for four weeks to receive medical treatment. The government, however, did not allow an extension in his stay.
