Chief minister of Tamil Nadu J Jayalalithaa, who was hospitalised for quite a few days, has now recovered completely.

Apollo Hospitals chairman Dr Prathap C Reddy told media that she knows what’s going around and is aware of all affairs of the state.

Dr Reddy said: “She [Jayalalithaa] is now aware of what is happening around her. She asks and demands what she wants. We are happy to tell you she is well.”

Dr Reddy further said that in a span of short time, she will be headed home. Her treatment went well and it was because of the teamwork of doctors and nurses.

He said,”When to go home is now a small thing. The decision will be made by her. The most important part of the treatment is that it is over and very successful.”

He also revealed that she controls the doctors and nurses in the hospital.

“She is under control. She controls the doctors and nurses [when it comes to] what she and they should do… You know her nature very well. She understands herself very well. She will ask us very soon ‘when I am going home.’ It must be on top of her mind. It will not be too long before she sees you all,” Dr Reddy said.

The minister was admitted to the hospital on September 22 with complaints of fever and dehydration. Later, she had to be put on respiratory support for her infection and lung congestion. Doctors from UK and All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, joined the team of doctors at the Apollo Hospitals.
