Former President of India Pranab Mukherjee is in a comatose state, but his vital parametres are stable, the Army’s Research and Referral (R&R) Hospital said on August 13th, 2020 morning. Mukherjee’s condition remains unchanged and he continues to be on ventilatory support, it further said.

The former President Pranab Mukherjee was admitted to the R&R hospital after testing positive for COVID-19 disease. He underwent brain surgery on Monday after a clot was discovered.

Meanwhile, his son Abhijit asked people to stop circulating fake news about Mukherjee’s health. “Speculations & fake news being circulated by reputed Journalists on social media clearly reflects that Media in India has become a factory of Fake News,” he said.
