President Miloš Zeman was again taken to the Central Military Hospital on Sunday. After a meeting with Andrej Babiš (YES), a convoy of cars set out from Lány, which accompanies the ambulance. The hospital’s hospitalization was also confirmed today by hospital spokeswoman Jitka Zinke. Further information should be announced by the director of the Central Military Hospital at two o’clock in the afternoon. The information was first brought by the iDnes.cz portal.
The ambulance described by the “mobile intensive care unit of the ÚVN” is accompanied by several protection service vehicles. According to Hrad, the president has been ill in the last two weeks, voting directly in Lány because of it, and on the recommendation of Zavoral, he canceled today’s participation in the CNN Prima News debate.
The media and politicians have been speculating about Zeman’s health for several days. In September, he spent eight nights in the ÚVN, according to Prague Castle, it was a reconditioning stay, during which the president underwent several examinations and infusions. Since then, Zeman has been in Lány.
they politely dare to protect, especially politicians and journalists, a sensitive approach to the hospitalization of the President. Everyone can get sick, then humanity must come first, a wish for early healing. Faith and conscience lead us to this.

In recent days, Prague Castle has repeatedly rejected claims that the president has serious health problems. Castle spokesman Jiří Ovčáček said to Radio Z on Friday that Zeman had been ill for 14 days. “Mr. President has to gather strength, we have to realize that Mr. President is 77 years old, it’s old age and it just has to find some ailments,” he said.
According to him, the current situation does not limit Zeman in the exercise of his constitutional powers and the president is ready to contribute to the formation of the government. Zeman’s attending physician Zavoral, who specializes in gastroenterology, regularly visits him. On Friday, speculation about the serious condition of President Ovčáček was described as rumors and misinformation. He did not publish more detailed information about the health complications of the speaker.
