Doctors treating former prime minister Nawaz Sharif have refused to discharge the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo citing serious health risk.:
Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s health condition has further deteriorated and slipped into the danger zone following a drastic decrease in the blood platelet count, forcing the doctors to stop his heart medication, according to a media report.
According to the new test report on Sunday, the blood platelet count of the 69-year-old Nawaz Sharif has fallen from 45,000 to 25,000 within a day.
Nawaz Sharif was rushed to the Services Hospital on Monday night from the anti-graft body’s custody after his platelets dropped to a critical low level of 2,000.
The three-time prime minister on Saturday also suffered angina attack while undergoing treatment at a Lahore hospital. Angina is a type of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart.
“Relatives of Nawaz Sharif have expressed satisfaction over his treatment and according to them his treatment will continue at the Services Hospital. However, if his family wants to shift him from here, the medical board will decide,” Mehmood Ayaz told The Express Tribune.
President of PML-N Shehbaz Sharif said his brother has shown willingness to be treated abroad.
In the PML-N’s core committee meeting, the party leaders expressed concerns regarding Sharif’s health condition. Shehbaz Sharif told them about the former prime minister’s readiness to go abroad for his medical treatment.
