President Miloš Zeman has undergone a thorough medical examination at the Central Military Hospital. He is suffering from dehydration and mild exhaustion but is not in danger of death, according to a statement issued by the Castle on Thursday. Zeman reportedly underwent a CT scan, sonography, and blood tests.

“The examinations as mentioned above did not reveal any illnesses or any other problems that would endanger the life of the President of the Republic,” presidential spokesman Jiří Ovčáček said in a press release.

According to Ovcacek, Zeman will complete a recuperative stay involving infusions and should have a regular work schedule next week. He is due to meet Finance Minister Alena Schillerová (ANO), ODS leader Petr Fiala and SPD leader Tomio Okamura on Wednesday. He is scheduled to meet with Czech Interior Minister Jan Hamáček (ČSSD) on Thursday.

The Castle has not provided any information about the President’s health since his transfer to a hospital on Tuesday, which has given rise to speculation.
