PM Imran Khan has sent his prayers for former PM Nawaz Sharif who has been hospitalized in a critical condition.

Nawaz Sharif, who has been serving a jail term in Kot Lakhpat jail, was taken to a Lahore’s Services Hospital on Monday night after his platelet count dropped to an alarming level.

Taking to social media, PM Imran Khan wrote, “Political differences notwithstanding, my sincere prayers are with Nawaz Sharif for his health. I have directed all concerned to ensure provision of the best possible health care and medical treatment to him”.

Services Institute of Medical Sciences (SIMS) Principal Dr. Mahmood Ayyaz said on Thursday that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s condition is improving as his platelets count increased to 20,000 from 7,000.

Nawaz Sharif has been diagnosed with immune thrombocytopenia. According to the doctors, the disease causes the breakdown of blood cells. The doctors at the hospital declared thrombocytopenia a treatable disease.

This was confirmed by the hospital administration today after the initial test reports came out.

Dr. Ayyaz has further said that the bone marrow of the patient is “completely functional”.
