Former president Pranab Mukherjee continues to be on a ventilator and his vital parameters are stable, according to doctors attending to him.

A health bulletin issued by the Army Research and Referral Hospital on Friday said, “The condition of the Pranab Mukherjee remains unchanged this morning (14 August 2020). He is under intensive care and continues to be on ventilatory support. His vital parameters are presently stable.”

The condition of the former President remains critical but has not worsened, his daughter Sharmistha Mukherjee said on Friday.

Mukherjee's daughter took to Twitter after the medical bulletin, saying his condition has not worsened.

"Without getting into medical jargons, whatever I could understand from the last two days is that though my dads' condition continues to remain very critical, it hasn't worsened. There's little improvement in his eyes' reaction to light," she said.

Mukherjee served as the 13th President of India from 2012 to 2017. --PTI
