Whole body physiotherapy was being done, he had said, adding that she was normally recuperating after being in bed for several weeks and would herself decide when to go home.

Jayalalithaa’s health being constantly monitored; doctors say Tamil Nadu CM responding well to treatment

Chennai: With Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa continuing to receive treatment, a stream of high-profile visitors, including Kerala Governor P Sathasivam and Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, today visited the Apollo Hospital and enquired about her health.

The hospital, where the AIADMK general secretary was admitted on 22 September after she complained of fever and dehydration, said she was “constantly being monitored”.

“Prof Dr G Khilnani, Department of Medicine, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), visited Apollo Hospital again on 9 and 10 October and examined Honourable Chief Minister,” the hospital’s Chief Operating Officer, Subbiah Viswanathan, said in a release.

Khilnani, part of a three-member AIIMS panel which had examined Jayalalithaa last week, had discussions with the hospital’s expert panel and “concurred with the present line of treatment” being given to the chief minister, the release said.

Jayalalithaa continues to be under treatment and “is being constantly monitored by the intensivists and other consultants in the expert panel”, it added.

Necessary respiratory support, antibiotics, nutrition, supportive therapy and passive physiotherapy were being given to her, the release said.

Earlier, Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu, who visited the hospital on Sunday, described Jayalalithaa as a “fighter” and expressed confidence that she would continue to serve the people of Tamil Nadu.

“I am confident that she has a strong willpower and she is always a fighter. I am confident that she will fight back, become normal and continue to serve the people of Tamil Nadu and that is my wish,” he told reporters after making a “courtesy call” on Governor Chennamaneni Vidyasagar Rao at Raj Bhavan.

Kerala Governor P Sathasivam, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and Puducherry Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi also visited the hospital and quoted the doctors as saying that Jayalalithaa “was recovering”.

Vijayan, accompanied by Sathasivam, visited the hospital and held discussions with hospital CMD Prathap Reddy. “We met Dr Prathap Reddy and the other doctors providing treatment to the chief minister. The specialists informed us that she was responding well to the treatment,” Sathasivam told reporters.

“Within a short period, she is likely to be discharged and it is possible for her to take charge of the administration. We also pray for her speedy recovery,” he said.

Vijayan said the two had come to “convey the collective good wishes of the people of Kerala”.
