The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) today said Muhyiddin Yassin is doing well in hospital, and that there is no evidence of his previous tumour condition recurring.
Muhyiddin was admitted to hospital on June 30 after suffering a bout of diarrhoea.
The PMO said then that he began having the condition the night before and was hospitalised the following morning for treatment and monitoring.
In a statement today, it said the prime minister was in stable condition and improving in health, adding that he has been allowed to work from the hospital.
“He remains in hospital on the advice of his medical team to continue intravenous antibiotic treatment.
“He is expected to be discharged in a few days,” it added.
Muhyiddin was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2018. He subsequently underwent surgery to remove the tumour as well as chemotherapy treatment.
In January, the PMO denied that Muhyiddin was receiving further treatment, saying rumours of this were ill intentioned.
