As suspense continued about the health condition of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa admitted to Apollo Hospitals last month, there was no medical bulletin about her health from the hospital for the sixth consecutive day.

Apollo Hospitals, in its last bulletin issued on 10 October, said Jayalalithaa is constantly monitored by intensivists and other consultants.

In the 10 October bulletin, the hospital said: "Necessary respiratory support, antibiotics, nutrition, supportive therapy and passive physiotherapy are being given."

The 68-year-old Jayalalithaa was admitted to the hospital on 22 September for fever and dehydration.

The doctors later said she needed a longer stay at the hospital as she was suffering from infection and put her on respiratory support.
