Former President Pranab Mukherjee continues to remain in a deep coma but his vital parameters are stable, the hospital said on Saturday morning.

Doctors attending to the 84-year-old said that he is being treated for respiratory infection and continues to be on ventilatory support.

Pranab Mukherjee was admitted to the Army's Research and Referral Hospital in Delhi Cantonment on Aug. 10 and was operated for removal of a clot in the brain the same day.

He had also tested positive for Covid-19.

He developed a lung infection later and is being treated at the hospital.

"The condition of Shri Pranab Mukherjee remains unchanged this morning. He is deeply comatose and is being treated for respiratory infection. His vital parameters are stable and he continues to be on ventilatory support," the hospital said in a statement.

Pranab Mukherjee held the post of the 13th President of India from 2012 to 2017.
