Former Slovak president Michal Kováč is set to remain at the Military Hospital in the Bratislava borough of Kramáre for another ten days after being admitted on Monday, the TASR newswire reported on Tuesday, July 13.

“This is the estimate that both my doctor and I have made, but it could well be more or less in the end,” Kováč said. The former president, who is 79 and suffers from Parkinson’s disease, was admitted to the hospital complaining of nausea and dizziness. “It’s nothing extraordinary – this has happened to me a couple of times before,” he said on Monday, adding that the hot weather could have been a contributing factor.

Speaking on Tuesday, Kováč added that he had undergone around half of his medical examinations and was scheduled to complete them later in the day.
