LAHORE (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan has allowed Maryam Nawaz to stay with her ailing father Nawaz Sharif in Services Hospital.
She has been granted permission to stay with her father on humanitarian grounds. The Punjab government has been informed about the decision made by the prime minister.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan phoned Punjab Governor Ch Sarwar and directed him to ensure healthcare facilities to Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz.
She is likely to be shifted to hospital shortly.
On the other hand, platelets of Nawaz Sharif have again reduced to the low level of 6,000. Medical Board chairman Prof Dr Mahmood Ayaz has confirmed the reduction in the platelets.
He said that they have started giving the new medicines and the platelets would reach the normal level.
Earlier on Thursday, the medical board had confirmed that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is suffering from acute immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and his condition is improving as platelets count increased to 20,000 from 7,000.
A doctor, treating the former premier, said the treatment of ITP has been started after the diagnosis was confirmed and Nawaz will recover in a week’s time. He further said that the disorder is treatable in Pakistan and intravenous treatment has commenced.
“He does not have aplastic anaemia and his haemoglobin and WBC count (white blood cells) are normal. Platelets are low though,” said the doctor, who is well aware of the former premier’s treatment and health issues.
The doctor added that Nawaz’s bonemarrow is also functioning normally and is making blood as it should in addition to a normal level of reticulocytes.
Earlier, Nawaz Sharif is likely to shifted to Pakistan Kidney & Liver Institute (PKLI) on Thursday for the medical treatment.
According to the details, Nawaz Sharif would undergo various tests for the kidney and liver, including the entire body. The option of sending Nawaz Sharif abroad for medical treatment will come under the consideration after the test reports.
