Dr. Shahab, however, has said that Umar’s condition is a lot better since he has no more fever now and his blood pressure is also under control. “Doctors have conducted his different tests, and after examining his reports have come to the conclusion that he is suffering from Pneumonia. Therefore, he is being administered antibiotics,” he elaborated.
