Friends and well-wishers of philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi can breathe a sigh of relief as his visit to the hospital on Saturday was just a routine check-up, said his family.
The news of Edhi's illness and admission at the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) spread on Sunday morning but members of his family said there was nothing to worry about.
Edhi was taken to SIUT but only for his routine dialysis treatment, said hospital sources. He arrived at the facility on Saturday and was admitted on doctor's advice. "It was a routine check-up and he is absolutely fine," confirmed Anwar Kazmi, the spokesperson of the Edhi Foundation. He also informed that Edhi has been admitted at the hospital many times in the past.
