Condition of former president Christofias steady, but critical

Former president Demetris Christofias remains in intensive care at Nicosia Hospital with serious respiratory problems. His condition is described as steady, but remains critical, the Health Ministry said in a medical communique issued early on Tuesday afternoon.

It said that doctors had evaluated the former president’s condition and the results of tests. A doctor specialising in infections is being brought in from abroad to boost the team of doctors, the ministry added.

Christofias was admitted to hospital on Saturday with serious respiratory problems and was moved to the ICU on Monday after his condition deteriorated.

President Nicos Anastasiades and a number of political party leaders have been visiting the hospital and expressing their wishes to the former president.

Christofias served as President from 2008 to 2013. He previously was general secretary of AKEL (1988-2008). He also served as President of the House between 2001 to 2008.
