BJ Habibie's Condition Stable and Improving, Says Family (wow)

JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - After undergoing treatment since September 1, 2019, at the Gatot Soebroto Army Hospital (RSPAD Gatot Soebroto), uthe condition of former President of the Republic of Indonesia Bacharuddin Jusuf (BJ) Habibie has begun to stabilize. The former Indonesian president's condition also continues to improve.

His latest condition was conveyed by BJ Habibie's family on Tuesday (09/10/2019) evening.

A statement regarding the current condition of BJ Habibie's health was conveyed by BJ Habibie's second son, Thareq Kemal Habibie, at a press conference on Tuesday evening at RSPAD Gatot Soebroto in Jakarta, where Habibie was being treated.

Thareq said Habibie's condition is now stable and improving. According to him, the pain experienced by Habibie was more caused by fatigue due to old age.

"Please understand that he is already over 80 years old, and is going 84 this year. He is very active, so he likes to forget that he is 80," said Thareq.

Thareq said the former president's high list of activities could not be matched with his heart work. Moreover, Habibie already has heart problems since he was young.

This then made Habibie exhausted, and his health deteriorated. Therefore, the former president was rushed to the hospital.

Thareq added the family had taken Habibie to the hospital so that he could have a total rest. If the former president was treated at home, he would surely have many visitors, which would hinder the former president from resting and recuperating.

However, for now, only certain people are allowed to visit Habibie. Including the family, which is only limited to the nuclear family of BJ Habibie.
