Savisaar's health improving ({{commentsTotal}})


Center Party press secretary Taavi Pukk said that the health of their party chairman and Tallinn Mayor Edgar Savisaar is improving and doctors are satisfied with his recovery.

“I am waiting for him to improve very hastily, but doctors tell me it doesn't work like that. But there are no fears that something could be critical,” Savisaar's friend and fellow party member Aadu Must told Delfi.

Must said he has spoken to Savisaar, but only had a light conversation.

Savisaar was taken to Tartu University Clinic on March 19 after suffering from an acute infection, which led to doctors amputating his leg above the knee. He was brought out of a medically induced coma two weeks ago.

The party said on April 6 that the spread of the infection has been stopped, and many internal organs have recovered. Savisaar no longer needs help breathing around the clock.

Kadri Simson, the daughter of Must, has been named the party's temporary chairman with doctors saying Savisaar could yet make a recovery and return to work.
