Saudi King to Undergo Treatment for Lung Inflammation

by Dubaiforum

Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz is set to undergo a treatment programme for a lung inflammation at Al Salam Palace in Jeddah, the state news agency reported on Sunday. The 88-year-old king will be treated with antibiotics until the inflammation subsides, according to the royal court.

As a result of King Salman’s health issue, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has postponed his scheduled visit to Japan, as confirmed by Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshimasa Hayashi.

Earlier in the day, King Salman underwent medical tests at the royal clinics at Al Salam Palace due to “high temperature and joint pain”, the state news agency reported.

This is not the first time the king has faced health concerns. In April, he was admitted to the hospital for a routine checkup, as reported by state TV.

King Salman ascended to the throne in 2015, becoming the ruler of the world’s leading oil exporter after serving as crown prince and deputy premier for over two and a half years. As the custodian of Islam’s holiest sites, his health is closely monitored by the public.
