Speculation regarding president’s health

04-11-2013

There has been speculation regarding the state of President Miloš Zeman’s health in the wake of a bad fall last week. The president injured his knee after tripping in his apartment at night and is expected to be bound to a wheelchair for several weeks. His chief doctor, Health Minister Martin Holcát said the president’s condition was stabilized and he was being nursed by nuns. Mr. Holcát rejected speculation, which appeared in the weekly Týden on Monday, that the president was in a much more serious condition after reportedly having suffered a stroke.
