New Delhi, June 13 (PTI): Former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee has shown significant improvement in the last 48 hours and doctors are hopeful of his full recovery in the next few days, AIIMS director Dr. Randeep Guleria said on Wednesday.
The 93-year-old leader was admitted to the All India Institute Of Medical Sciences on June 11, with kidney tract infection and chest congestion.
His urine output was also on the lower side, Guleria said.

“He has shown significant improvement in the last 48 hours. His kidney function is normal and his urine output is nearly normal now.
“The infection is under control and the blood pressure, respiratory function and hearty rate are normal. We are hopeful of his full recovery in the next few days,” Guleria told reporters.
AIIMS had on Tuesday said the former prime minister was responding well to treatment.
A host of political leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bharatiya Janata Party chief Amit Shah, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat and former prime ministers Manmohan Singh and H.D. Deve Gowda have visited the ailing leader over the past two days.
