Malala remains in a stable condition at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.
On Monday (22 October), Mian Iftikhar Hussain, the Information Minister of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan, visited the hospital to meet with Dr Dave Rosser, Medical Director.
In a private meeting, Dr Rosser gave a clinical progress report on Malala’s treatment and condition. He reiterated the detail given at a media briefing last week (see video below).
The Minister also brought get-well cards and flowers for the 15-year-old, although he was not able to visit her personally. He sincerely thanked the nurses, doctors and support staff involved in her care. He said she was receiving the “best care in the world” as the hospital could provide the most appropriate expertise and experience to treat the injured teenager.
At this time, Malala’s family remain in Pakistan.
First official visit from Pakistan today; I hope you’ll soon be able to have the tracheotomy removed so you can speak and also that your energies are restore so you can walk about; really praying for your prompt recovery Malala.
