Czech president sent back to hospital — Analysis
After testing positive for Covid-19, Czech President Milos Zeman was sent to the hospital. After being discharged from a hospital, where he had been admitted for an undisclosed reason, the tests were performed within hours.
Czech president announced Thursday night that the official, aged 77 years old was being admitted to hospital. Zeman was taken to the Central Military Hospital (UVN) after testing positive for the coronavirus at the presidential retreat at Lany, outside of the country’s capital city of Prague.
“The president’s program will be suspended pending the treatment of Covid-19,” Zeman’s office said in a statement.
Zeman, who had spent six weeks at the UVN, was released earlier than expected. Zeman was initially admitted to the hospital on October 10, and transferred to an ICU, where he spent most of his time at the facility.
While no diagnosis has been officially confirmed, local media reported that Zeman’s prolonged stay at the UVN was due to a liver condition. The presidency offered little clarification on the issue, saying only that he was treated for a chronic illness.
Regarding his positive test for Covid-19, the president has reportedly shown no symptoms of the disease. According to local media, he had previously been vaccinated against the virus at least three times.
