PETALING JAYA: Pakatan Harapan de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been discharged from hospital after being admitted for medical observation, said one of the panel doctors treating him.

Health Ministry deputy director-general Datuk Seri Dr S. Je­yain­dran said Anwar left Hos­pital Kuala Lumpur around 4pm yesterday.

“Datuk Seri’s condition has stabilised and he was discharged to the Cheras National Rehabilitation Centre to continue with his rehabilitation,” he said.

Anwar was admitted for observation because his heart rate was getting slower, following a rare complication of steroid use, he said.

Dr Jeyaindran said the side effects would resolve with time.

He said Anwar was given a steroid injection several days ago.

It was reported that Anwar was admitted to the hospital at 1am after suffering a negative reaction to the injection to his right shoulder.

PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil said the steroid injection was administered to Anwar as he was suffering from prolonged pain after surgery on his right shoulder some months ago.
