Former President Hosni Mubarak does not need to be transferred to a specialized military hospital now that his health has stabilized, said a medical report issued by the Maadi Military Hospital.
Mubarak was admitted to the Maadi hospital after falling and injuring himself in his Tora Prison bathroom last Saturday. Sources told Al-Masry Al-Youm the doctors there found that the former president did not break any bones in the accident, and his blood pressure and pulse are normal. The bruises he sustained from the fall can easily be treated at the prison, they said.
Mubarak spent only an hour at the Maadi Military Hospital to be examined by doctors and undergo medical testing before returning to Tora Prison on Wednesday, said Major General Mohamed Ibrahim, the deputy interior minister for the prison sector.
The Armed Forces agreed to send Mubarak to undergo a CT scan of his brain after his accident.
