KATHMANDU, Nov 2: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, who has been receiving treatment at Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Centre in the capital since October 29, is likely to be discharged from the hospital today evening, a key aide to the prime minister said.

Oli’s Press Advisor Kundan Aryal told Republica Online that the prime minister is almost fully recovered.

 “Prime Minister Oli’s health condition has made significant improvement every day. We can say now that the health condition is normal. He is likely to be discharged today evening,” Aryal added. However, the hospital has yet to confirm about when the prime minister will be discharged.

In a press statement, the hospital said on Friday morning that the prime minister’s health condition is normal based on the medical tests conducted so far.

Oli admitted to the CCU of Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Centre in Maharajgunj under the Institute of Medicine (IOM) on Monday after developing chest infection and fever.

A team of doctors including cardiologist Dr Arun Sayami, renal expert Dr Divya Singh and chest expert Dr Santa Kumar Das are involved in the prime minister's treatment.

“The course of antibiotics will be completed Friday and he will be given all oral medicines from today itself," said Dr Sayami.

The hospital has not allowed visitors to meet the ailing prime minister from Tuesday evening citing possibilities of infection.
