Former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, who was admitted to AIIMS following complaints of fever and weakness has been diagnosed with dengue, hospital officials informed on Saturday, adding that his condition is now improving. The 89-year-old Congress leader was down with a fever on Monday, October 11 and recovered from it, but his health remained weak and was given fluids.

”He has been diagnosed with dengue but his platelet count is now increasing and his condition is improving,” an AIIMS official told ANI Saturday.

Dr. Singh has been admitted to a private ward in the cardio-neuro center of the hospital and is under the care of a team of cardiologists led by Dr. Nitish Naik, his personal physician for years.

Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya met the veteran leader on Thursday, October 14 and inquired about his health.
