Health minister: president making progress

15-11-2013

The head of a team of doctors overseeing the health of the president, Health Minister Martin Holcát, has informed the Czech News Agency that the president is making a quicker-than-expected recovery from a recent knee injury. According to the minister, the president was getting used to crutches in physical rehab – on stairs as well as during a short walk on the grounds of Lány Chateau where he has been resting.

The president suffered his injury at the end of last month, leading him to scrap foreign visits for the rest of year. This week the president met with the head of the Social Democrats, Bohuslav Sobotka, and the head of the Communist Party, Vojtěch Filip, to discuss post-election developments.
