LONDON: The condition of Kulsoom Nawaz, wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, has been shifted to ICU from emergency unit as her health condition has deteriorated again, hospital sources informed on Thursday.
Kulsoom Nawaz fell in ICU after cardiac arrest, and has not regained consciousness yet. She is kept on ventilator, life support machine and emergency medicine.
The wife of former premier was re-admitted to the hospital on Wednesday. She was taken to emergency unit last night as her condition deteriorated.
Begum Kulsoom was rushed to the ICU where she collapsed as she suffered a cardiac arrest. The sources have said that she is being kept under intensive care/close monitoring.
Nawaz Sharif, along with daughter Maryam Nawaz left for London earlier today to spend Eid with his ailing wife. Maryam, in a tweet, informed of their departure and requested prayers for her mother’s health.
Kulsoom Nawaz underwent surgery in 2017 to remove diseased lymph nodes after she was diagnosed with throat cancer. In April, her medical reports indicated that her health had worsened after her throat cancer began to spread to the rest of her body.
On May 25, her health was said to have improved following medical treatment for throat cancer in London.
Nawaz and Maryam are scheduled to return to the country after spending Eid with Kulsoom Nawaz. On June 7, Nawaz and Maryam had sought a five-day exemption from appearance before accountability court in the corruption references against the Sharif family.
