Former president Asif Ali Zardari's daughter Bakhtawar Bhutto-Zardari on Wednesday revealed that her father was suffering from "post-Covid health concerns".

In a tweet, she said that there was water near Zardari's lungs for which she said that a procedure had been done a month prior.

Bakhtawar further explained that is the reason why Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairperson was not seen physically helping flood victims. She also thanked everyone for their prayers.

Sources told The Express Tribune on Tuesday that the ex-president was taken to a private hospital in Karachi after his health deteriorated.

They said a medical team led by Dr Asim Hussain, was examining the former president.

Last year, Zardari was also admitted to a private hospital in the port city on the advice of his doctors.

The former president 'fell ill due to the exertion and exhaustion from travelling for court appearances and the budget session'.

In October 2020, Zardari was shifted to an intensive care unit of a private hospital in Clifton as he was reportedly suffering from a chest infection and his blood sugar level had fallen to an alarming level.

The PPP co-chairperson's personal physician Dr Asim Hussian had maintained that Zardari was not feeling well and a team of health experts was constantly monitoring him and carrying out his medical tests.
