Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli was admitted to Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Centre in Maharajgunj, Kathmandu on Monday after developing a lung infection. He had been ill for the past few days due to seasonal flu.
Earlier on Sunday, the Prime Minister’s Secretariat stated that Oli’s health condition was improving.
Oli was taking rest for the past two days avoiding his day-to-day meetings as advised by the doctors. Oli also joined the Cabinet meeting at the prime minister’s official residence Baluwatar yesterday.
Prime Minister Oli failed to attend the tea reception on Saturday at Bhrikuti Mandap hosted by his party Nepal Communist Party (NCP) due to illness.
Oli had spent nearly a year and a half for treatment in New Delhi in 2014. The UML leader had undergone a successful prostate surgery at the Max Hospital on March 12, 2014, after tests confirmed that a thin mass of tissue had grown under his urinary tract.
In 2007, Oli had undergone a kidney transplant surgery at the Apollo Hospital in New Delhi and has been visiting Bangkok for regular health tests.
