DHARAMSHALA, Apr. 11: Exiled Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama who was admitted to a hospital in Delhi on Tuesday after contracting a minor chest infection is responding very well to treatment and will most likely be discharged from the hospital by Friday, his aide said today.

“His Holiness is fine. He is doing very well. Still on medication but he is doing very well and will be discharged. This morning he was in his normal routine. He was doing some exercise... Basically he is cured but will continue his course of medicine," Tenzin Taklha, the Tibetan leader’s secretary said.

Taklha said that the octogenarian Tibetan leader is completing his antibiotic course as advised by the doctors.

The 83-year-old took a flight from Dharamshala in the early hours of Tuesday, just a day after he had returned to his residence here following fever and symptoms of cold. His personal physician Dr. Sadhutsang Tsetan Dorjee said that he was suffering from a “minor chest infection”.

Kangra police superintendent Santosh Patial told The Indian Express that the Dalai Lama took a regular morning flight on Tuesday and was not airlifted. His sudden departure drew concerns from Tibetans as well as followers around the world. Tibetans and well wishers poured in prayers and messages for a speedy recovery for the Dalai Lama through social media platforms and micro messaging apps.
