Nawaz Sharif's personal physician, Dr Adnan Khan, on Friday said the former premier's condition was "critical" while two British doctors, according to family sources, advised the Sharif family to bring Nawaz to London for specialised treatment immediately.
Dr Khan also endorsed the view that the PML-N supremo needs to be shifted abroad for treatment.
"Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is critically unwell," Dr Khan said in a post on Twitter, adding that the platelet count of the patient was unstable despite maximum therapy.
