Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has left the hospital after a physical examination at Keio University Hospital on the afternoon of 17th local time, Japan’s current affairs news agency reported. Abe stayed in the hospital for 7.5 hours this time. Although he and other people around him repeatedly stressed that he was only doing an examination, many Japanese media speculated that his health was worrying.
after the physical examination ended at 6:00 p.m. on the 17th, amidst the public opinion that he was worried about his health, Abe took a special car to go back to his private house, and replied to the press group at the door of the private house that “you are hard working” and “I use the summer vacation to check and adjust my body”. Abe has not arranged any official activities since the 16th and plans to rest until the 18th.
although people around Abe also explained that the prime minister did the examination to take good care of his body, many Japanese media, such as current affairs news agency, have noticed that Abe has always been in a state of fatigue recently, and there are also rumors of his poor health in Japanese political circles. There have been questions among many political backbones and young cadres about “is the prime minister really OK?”. Current affairs news agency pointed out that his physical condition may directly affect future anti epidemic measures and future political situation.
Japanese media previously reported that Abe would go to Qingying university hospital for physical examination every six months. The last physical examination was on June 13 this year. The hospital said that Abe was receiving “additional examination in June physical examination”. People around Abe said vaguely that “this is what the hospital said”.
Abe’s physical condition has attracted much attention recently. Many people who have met with him said that “he looks very tired.”. This summer, because of the epidemic, Abe did not go to the villa in Shanli County as usual, and his plan to return to his hometown was cancelled. Some people in the government said that “Abe looks very bad” and “he is exhausted”. A few days ago, some Japanese weekly even reported that “Abe vomited blood last month (July)”.
