Nepal PM admitted to hospital

Kathmandu: Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has been admitted to Manmohan CardioVascular Center, Maharajgunj due to worsening health condition.

“Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is now undergoing treatment in ICU. He has been suffering from cold and cough since Saturday and he was brought in here Sunday night with increased complications,” Dr. Arun Sayami from the hospital informed.

As per the suggestions from the doctors, he has been taking rest since two days and keeping out from the public engagements and sights,” a press note from the Prime Minister’s Media Advisor Dr. Kundan Aryal stated.
