President Zeman’s medical council will meet for the first time on Friday


Zeman is at the Department of Anesthesia, Resuscitation and Intensive Care of the Central Military Hospital (ÚVN). An ambulance took him to the hospital on Sunday, October 10, from the chateau in Lány.

Due to the president’s serious health condition, the legislators began to consider the temporary transfer of powers to the head of state to the Speaker of the House and the Prime Minister. Before that, they want to request an update from doctors about Zeman’s ability to hold office. The chairman of the ODS and the candidate of the emerging government coalition for Prime Minister Petr Fiala has previously stated that the Chamber of Deputies should not decide on the transfer of powers of the president at the inaugural meeting scheduled for November 8-10, but only at a subsequent meeting. The Organizing Committee of the Senate sets the date of a possible meeting of the upper chamber for the transfer of powers until 9 November.

“We will certainly not be maneuvered into the position that we must conclude by November 8, when the House will sit. We need peace and balance. Then we will present a medical opinion. If politicians think we will instruct us to activate Article 66 of the Constitution, then We are wrong. We will comment on the disease and its prognosis. The next steps will be up to them. ” he said Winter.

According to him, the creation of a council is not unusual in the medical world. “For more complicated conditions, a council of experts from various disciplines is convened to thoroughly assess the situation. Such a council is already operating within the Central Military Hospital at the President’s Office. , “described the server Winter.

The establishment of the multidisciplinary medical council was initiated by the director of ÚVN and Zeman’s attending physician Miroslav Zavoral. According to server iDNES.cz should include experts in physiotherapy, diagnosis or treatment of diseases in the abdomen or a doctor in the field of psychiatry in a nine-member team. The server mentioned the surgeon of the Motol hospital Pavel Pafek and the physiotherapist Pavel Kolář. ČTK also has information about Kolář’s participation, both doctors also confirmed their membership server Message list.

According to Zavoral’s earlier statement, the reason for the president’s hospitalization is the complications accompanying Zeman’s chronic illness. Neither the Office of the President of the Republic nor the Central Office provided any further information on Zeman’s illness. Last week, the hospital announced with Zeman’s consent that his health had improved slightly over the past two days due to treatment.
