The Czech president who is lying in hospital will return to work next week
Prague – The Czech Presidential Office said Thursday that Czech President Milos Zeman, who was hospitalized this week, underwent medical examinations that did not reveal any life-threatening problems or illness.
Zeman’s office said doctors had performed CT scans, ultrasounds and blood tests at the military hospital in Prague where the president was admitted on Tuesday. She said the president was dehydrated and a little tired.
During his current hospital stay, Zeman’s office said, he will receive unspecified doses and will be fully back on duty next week.
Zeman, 76, is a heavy smoker and suffers from diabetes and related neuropathy. He has difficulty walking and uses a wheelchair.
His predecessor, Vaclav Klaus, who was in the same hospital for tests after being diagnosed with high blood pressure, may be discharged this week, his spokesman said.
