KUALA LUMPUR, 26 January 2022: Malaysia’s former Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad shows further health improvement today and has been transferred to the normal ward at the National Heart Institute (IJN), Bernama reported.
According to his eldest daughter, Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir, her father who was previously warded at the IJN’s Coronary Care Unit (CCU), was in good spirit to fully recover.
In a statement today Marina said that specialists treating Dr. Mahathir found that he is recovering well.
To avoid infections, both Tun Dr. Mahathir and his wife, Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, are not allowed to receive visitors at the IJN for now.
“Dr. Mahathir and the entire family also thanked everyone for praying for his full recovery,” she said.
Last Saturday, Marina in a statement said that Tun Dr. Mahathir was in stable condition and had responded well to the treatment following an elective medical procedure on 8 January.
Prior to that, on 16 December last year, he was admitted to the IJN for a full medical check-up and for further observation before being discharged on 23 December 2021. ***
