After former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was transferred to the Hospital of Services on Monday night, the National Responsibility Office said his condition was "under control" and that dengue test results were negative.
In a press release issued by NAB Lahore after the former prime minister's visit to the hospital, the accountant said that Nawaz platelets had declined "allegedly due to the provision of blood-thinning medications suggested by the Dr. Adnan Khan, who is your personal doctor. "
The accountability officer said Nawaz had been transferred to the Services Hospital for a complete medical check-up and to increase his platelet levels.
"A team of doctors has been designated to provide you with medical facilities 24 hours a day without fail," the press release said, adding that his doctor had spent three hours with Nawaz on Monday.
"Therefore, the impression given in the media that NAB has not given him permission to see Nawaz Sharif is not correct and totally unfounded. The media is requested to kindly avoid spreading speculation without consulting [NAB’s] spokesperson, "the office clarified.
Visiting the Hospital of Services today, the president of PML-N Shahbaz Sharif said: "We [Sharif family] and doctors are very worried that [Nawaz’s] platelets reached the 15,000 level while the normal level is 150,000 to 400,000 ".
"It is very worrying that [Nawaz’s] platelets fell so fast, "he added.
After his arrest in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case, the former prime minister was transferred from the Kot Lakhpat prison (where he is serving seven years in prison in the Al-Azizia case) to the NAB Lahore building. The office obtained his physical detention until October 25.
On Monday night, Dr. Adnan Khan had alarmed about the deterioration of the former prime minister's health, urging the Pakistani government Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) to transfer him immediately to a hospital for treatment.
Several party workers had gathered outside the NAB office on Monday night to demand that the authorities involved move their leader to a hospital.
Shahbaz also issued a statement, demanding that the Punjab government transfer his brother to the hospital without further delay.
"The medical reports of Nawaz Sharif by the government show that his condition is very serious. It is an insensitive attitude of the PTI government that despite his worsening of his state of health does not transfer him to the hospital," he said, warning the first Minister of consequences if something happened to Nawaz.
"Imran Khan Niazi will be responsible if something happens to Nawaz Sharif," he said.
PML-N spokesman, Marriyum Aurangzeb, said new medical reports showed that the condition of the party leader was "very serious" and required immediate hospitalization.
"By depriving Nawaz Sharif of medical treatment, Imran Khan cannot hide his incompetence and lies," he said.
A few months ago, two government hospitals had denied a specialized cardiac ambulance facility for emergency medical coverage to the former prime minister at the Central Jail.

The Punjab prison department had asked health superiors to provide a fully equipped ambulance to park in jail to transfer to any hospital in case of emergency, but was denied. The request was submitted to find that the ambulance made available in the prison was not well equipped.
A specialized cardiac ambulance is equipped with a defibrillator, heart monitor, ventilator and ECG machine. A defibrillator helps save a life by administering a high-energy electric shock to the patient's heart in case of cardiac arrest.
