LAHORE: The health of convicted former premier Nawaz Sharif started improving after initial medical treatment at the Services Hospital, here on Tuesday.

He was admitted to the hospital on Monday night after his platelet count dropped to precariously low level, requiring an emergency response. “The physicians have injected three mega units of platelets to Nawaz Sharif, which gradually hiked the cell count to 18,000,” according to sources privy to the special medical board. They claimed that Nawaz’s condition was still not completely out of danger, but hewas recovering fast.

Prof Dr Mahmood Ayyaz, Principal SIMS/SHL and head of the medical board, told the media earlier that the number of platelets in ex-PM’s body had dropped to 10,000. He said that some of Nawaz Sharif’s test results were satisfactory, and some were critical. “The tests with unsatisfactory results were being conducted again,” he said.

Nawaz was rushed to Services Hospital from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore detention centre Monday night after his health condition suddenly deteriorated. Earlier, he was shifted from Central Jail Kot Lakhpat to NAB Lahore building at Thokar Niaz Beg after the Bureau got his 14-day physical remand on Oct 11 in connection with the Chaudhry Sugar Mills corruption case investigation. NAB Lahore had also got shifted the medical facilities/services, being provided to him at Central Jail, to its cell in Lahore. NAB had been directed to produce Nawaz Sharif in court on Oct 25, 2019.

Earlier, the Punjab government had constituted a six-member special medical board comprising Prof Dr Mahmood Ayyaz, as convener, and with members including Prof Dr Kamran Khalid Cheema, head of Pulmonolgy SIMS/SHL, Prof Dr M Arif Nadeem, head of Medical Unit-III SIMS/SHL, Prof Dr Faiza Bashir, head of Pathology SIMS/SHL, Dr Khadija Irfan, associate professor/head of Endocrinology SIMS/SHL, and Dr Sobia Qazi, associate professor of Infectious Diseases SIMS/SHL, for detailed medical examination / investigation / management of Nawaz Sharif.
