New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who was admitted to a hospital here for an infection in her lower respiratory tract, is feeling better and is all set to go home may be in a day or two, the hospital said on Monday.
"Sonia Gandhi was admitted with acute chest infection but she is getting ready to go home may be in a day or two," Dr DS Rana, chairperson, department of nephrology, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital said, ANI reported.
"The health condition and test reports of Mrs Gandhi were reviewed today morning by treating doctors. Her test results are showing progressive improvement and there is decline in her infection status," he added.
Yesterday, a doctor had said, "Mrs Gandhi is feeling better and her condition is stable. She today (Sunday) underwent breathing exercises without any problem."
Initially, Gandhi was admitted under the care of Arup Kumar Basu, senior consultant and chairman of respiratory medicine. He is leading a team of doctors who are closely monitoring the Congress chief.
However, Gandhi's medication will continue until she is discharged from the hospital.
"She will remain under observation of the doctors until we get a proper sign of her recovery," the doctor said.
According to doctors, the problem is quite common during winter.
There has been a lot of speculation about Sonia Gandhi's health after her 2011 surgery in the US where she spent about five weeks and reportedly underwent a successful surgery at New York's Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
She was also treated for mild asthma for six days in 2008.
