President Miloš Zeman in ICU but in stable condition, hospital says

President Miloš Zeman is in an intensive care unit but in stable condition, a spokesperson for the Military University Hospital (ÚVN) in Prague said in a press released on Monday afternoon, a day after the Czech head of state was rushed to hospital in an ambulance.

President Zeman, 77, suffers from diabetes and neuropathy of the lower limbs. Attending physician Miroslav Zavoral said that he was hospitalised due to complications stemming from his chronic illness. He had spent eight days at the same hospital in September due to dehydration and exhaustion.

ÚVN spokeswoman Jitka Zinke said President Zeman is now being treated both at the Department of Anaesthesia, Resuscitation and Intensive Care Medicine at the 1st Medical Faculty of Charles University in Prague and at the internsive care unit of ÚVN.
