New Delhi (NVI): Former President Pranab Mukherjee’s condition remains unchanged this morning. He is under intensive care and continues to be on ventilatory support, but his vital parameters are stable, Army’s Research and Referal (RR) Hospital said in a statement.

“The condition of Hon’ble Shri Pranab Mukherjee remains unchanged this morning [14 August, 2020]. He is under intensive care and continues to be on ventilatory support. His vital parameters are presently stable,” a statement from the hospital said.

Mukherjee was admitted to Army hospital in Delhi cantonment on August 10 in a critical condition. He underwent a brain surgery to remove a clot in his brain.

His condition had worsened on August 11 and he had not shown signs of improvement since then.

The former President had also tested positive for coronavirus.

Pranab Mukherjee’s son and former MP Abhijit Mukherjee on Thursday said that the former President is slowly responding to medical treatment and all his vital parameters are stable.
