The health of former President Kostis Stephanopoulos is deemed extremely critical, his attending physician at “Errikos Dunant” hospital in Athens said on Saturday.
Ninety-year-old Stephanopoulos was hospitalized on Thursday night suffering from a serious respiratory infection. According to information released the next day, his condition was viewed as serious, given his age and weak health.
“He was admitted to hospital with fever and severe respiratory difficulty. It was found to suffer from pneumonia,” Dr. Antonios Dimitrakopoulos said. “Despite intensive treatment, his clinical picture is deteriorating with failure of multiple organ systems,” he added.
