Kathmandu, Aug 26: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, who is currently in Singapore for the treatment, has been reported with normal health condition.

Treatment with plasmapheresis- exchange of blood plasma- began in PM Oli last Friday.

He is admitted to the National University Hospital of Singapore for treatment, said PM’s Press Advisor Dr Kundan Aryal, quoting PM Oli’s private doctor Dibya Singh Shah.

The treatment to remove harmful elements from blood would continue for some more days.

In addition to the specialized doctors in the National University Hospital, his treatment would be conducted by Nepali doctors as well, added Dr Aryal.

PM Oli had left here for Singapore on August 22 to restore the functioning capacity of kidney after anti-body grew much in his blood.

Earlier, he had returned from Singapore treatment on August 12. Together with PM Oli are his spouse Radhika Shakya, chief political advisor Bishnu Rimal, private doctor Shah, and personal secretary Rajesh Bajracharya, among others.
