Argentina's president feverish, in hospital
Argentina's President Cristina Kirchner was admitted to hospital late Sunday suffering from fever, her office said, AFP reports.
The 61-year-old president began feeling unwell in the afternoon. She was admitted for tests and monitoring at the Otamendi Clinic in Buenos Aires, the statement signed by doctors Marcelo Ballesteros and Ricardo Solla said.
She had resumed her normal work schedule October 21 after resting for 48 hours on doctors orders due to pharyngitis.
In July, Kirchner also had to rest for two days due to sore throat and laryngitis. Her recovery time then had to be extended to a week and she cancelled her work schedule and a trip to Paraguay.
A little over a year ago, the president underwent surgery for an intracranial hematoma. She was then off work for six weeks, and doctors were upbeat about the results.
