Veteran social activist Anna Hazare, who because of his chest congestion and viral fever was admitted to Sancheti Institute for Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation in Pune has been recommended full rest for one entire month.
"We would keep him on bed. He needs one month of rest and he should keep his activities at rest. He does not talk much," said Dr. Parag Sancheti.
"He is looking much better today. He had his breakfast on time. He gained 200 gms of weight. His lungs are quite good. He is improving fast, but he has to take care of his diet
He should avoid pollution and meeting a lot of people. He has to stay in hospital for more 5-6 days," added Dr. Narendra Kewadia.
Concerns over Anna's health have been mounting ever since he went on a three-day fast to press his forum's demand for a strong and effective Lokpal body at Mumbai recently.
The 74-year-old activist was forced to cut short his hunger strike after a team of specialists advised him to start eating again on the second day of his fast, citing low blood pressure, weakness and threat to his kidneys.
Ever since he ended the fast, an ailing Hazare has been recuperating and resting in Ralegan Siddhi and this was after weeks and months of intense travelling, public speeches, press conferences and meetings in his crusade against corruption.
