ISLAMABAD: Malala Yousafzai's condition is witnessing steady improvement and as a result the critically injured 14-year old is now being administered less amount of sedatives, said Director General ISPR Maj Gen Asim Bajwa.
"Movement has been witnessed in Malala's hands and legs which is a positive development," Maj Gen Bajwa said while giving a briefing on Malala's health here on Saturday.
He said the doctors have cut down the amount of sedatives being administered to Malala Yousafzai in view of the steady improvement in her health condition. Her condition is satisfactory, he added.
The DG ISPR said the board of doctors have not yet made any decision in connection with taking young Malala abroad. The doctors are constantly busy in taking post-traumatic care of their patient, he said.
He, however, said that Malala is still on a ventilator and it would be premature to say anything in regard to the removal of the ventilator now. Doctors will decide on removal of ventilator tomorrow morning, he added.
Two other girl students wounded with Malala were "also being taken care of at places where they can get best treatment", he said, without elaborating.
