Sharon Doctor Says Former Israel Premier’s Condition Worsening

Jan. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon remains in a critical condition and the functioning of his organs is deteriorating, according to the chief of the hospital where he’s being treated.

“We are still talking about a critical, life-threatening condition,” Professor Zeev Rotstein, director of the Chaim Sheba Medical Center, said today in comments to the media broadcast on Army Radio. Laboratory and clinical tests point to “a gradual deterioration” in organ function, Rotstein said.

The former Israeli leader, 85, has been in a coma and hospitalized since suffering a stroke in January 2006. Doctors disclosed earlier this week that his condition had taken a turn for the worse.
