Zeman can’t work, the council decided. He sees no reason for Article 66 Vystrčil

Surgeon Pavel Pafko, who is also a member of the council, told Radiožurnál that Zeman had chronic liver disease, and indicated that it was cirrhosis. Server iROZHLAS.cz also confirmed that Zeman has a nourishing probe in his stomach.

According to Zima, between October 26 and November 1, the members of the council became acquainted with the president’s medical records and had the opportunity to examine him as well. Today, they agreed that he was provided with top care at the Central Military Hospital (ÚVN), and they also agreed with diagnoses and therapeutic procedures. They gave partial recommendations to the attending physicians.

“The state still requires hospitalization care for the presidents and at the moment it does not allow him to devote himself fully to his work duties,” Zima said. “It is still very difficult to determine the prognosis of further development of the health condition, the nature and manifestations of the underlying disease are certainly very serious.

According to Pafka, Zeman has a disease that cannot be completely cured, but it can be “compensated and improved”. He told Radiojournal that it was a chronic liver disease. When asked by the moderator that there is speculation about cirrhosis, he answered yes. He added that cirrhosis is known to be minimally symptomatic to asymptomatic for many years. He told the iROZHLAS.cz server that the president still has an established feeding probe, which the doctors at ÚVN introduced him on October 10, the first day of Zeman’s second hospitalization. “Mr. President currently has PEG. It was very reasonable that the probe was introduced to him,” Pafko said.

In an interview with Deník N, Zima stated that today’s decision of the council was unanimous and everyone agreed with it. Asked if Zeman could exercise some of his constitutional powers, he said he could perform some duties, but that as a doctor he could not comment on political issues. According to Zima, the president came to the hospital in a difficult condition, but he is improving in all respects. Asked when he could leave the hospital, he added: “I can’t prophesy from a ball. We have to follow developments. It’s been weeks or months.”

Zeman has been receiving treatment at the Central Military Hospital (ÚVN) since October 10 due to an overall deterioration in his health due to his chronic illness. His condition improved, on Thursday he was transferred from the intensive care unit to the standard ward.

According to hospital information published on October 18 by Senate President Miloš Vystrčil (ODS), the president was unable to perform any work duties at the time due to health reasons. Doctors assessed the long-term prognosis of Zeman’s health condition as extremely uncertain and described the possibility of returning to work in the coming weeks as unlikely. Politicians have considered opening Parliament’s talks to transfer presidential powers to the Prime Minister and Speaker. He pushed out today in response to a report from the council, saying he saw no reason to transfer powers if the president was able to perform at least the most important duties.

In a telephone conversation for Frequency 1 this morning, Zeman said that he felt completely normal, and because he was not overloaded, he was better than usual. He stated that he had not smoked for a month. According to him, the reason for his poor health was that he did not like eating and digested poorly. He added that he expects to fulfill his duties for the rest of his term, for about a year and a half.

The meeting of the multidisciplinary council asked the Central Committee to make sure that it cares for the president according to medical regulations and that doctors agree on the recommendations and prognosis for the president’s condition, said hospital director Miroslav Zavoral. According to Zima, the council will be permanent, it could meet again in two or three weeks to a month.

Zavoral, Monika Nývltová from the Endocrinology Center and Tomáš Tyll, Head of the Department of Anaesthesiology, Resuscitation and Intensive Care, will take part on behalf of ÚVN. In addition, Pavel Taimr, IKEM’s chief transplant hepatologist, is a member. The clinic where Taimr works focuses mainly on the liver transplant program. The council also includes two other experts in this field, namely Radan Brůha, Head of the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology of the General University Hospital in Prague (VFN), and Jan Bureš from the Department of Internal Gastroenterology at the University Hospital Hradec Králové. Other members are neurologist Robert Rusina, physiotherapist Pavel Kolář, head of the psychiatric clinic of the 1st Medical Faculty of Charles University and the General Hospital Martin Anders and clinical psychologist Pavel Harsa.
