Anastasiades is expected to be released from hospital on Tuesday, barring any unforeseen circumstances
Earlier reports say the president could soon be released from hospital, as early as Tuesday barring any unforeseen circumstances. He is said to have maintained a positive attitude and even managed to get out of bed to take a few steps aided by a walker.
His doctor told Cyprus News Agency that Anastasiades’ health is moving along “as expected” while adding that a hospital release date would be something to be determined by the doctor in consultation with the president.
Anastasiades, whose visitation restrictions have been lifted at Limassol’s Mediterranean Hospital, is reportedly also being kept abreast of the developments over the missile incident that shocked Cyprus Monday morning.
The president had hip surgery on Saturday after an incident in Limassol, when he stumbled on a step outside a shop, slipped and fell.
He was expected to remain in hospital at least until Tuesday, while he is expected to be back to work in 2-3 weeks.
