Klaus to stay in hospital for several days

24-07-2003

President Vaclav Klaus will stay in hospital until Sunday or the beginning of next week, and after that he should have a rest for a few days, the head of the General Teaching Hospital Martin Holcat said on Thursday. Mr Klaus, who is 62, was taken to hospital with tonsillitis on Monday evening. Though the tonsillitis symptoms receded he decided to remain in hospital because of joint pain and exhaustion from an extensive work schedule. Mr Klaus's schedule for the nearest future including the appointment of new judges to the Constitutional Court has been cancelled.
