Doctors from Vienna General Hospital, where George Michael is being treated for pneumonia, have issued a statement saying that the singer’s condition is “improving steadily”.

Professors Gottfried Locker and Christoph Zielinski said: “The latest development in Mr Michael’s case – which has evolved from a severe pneumococcal infection – necessitated intensive care due to its severity and extension. We are happy to announce that Mr Michael is improving steadily with an impressive regression of pneumonic symptoms and follows a steady rate of improvement as hoped. As we said previously, complete rest and peace and quiet are mandatory”.

They added: “There are no other health issues with regards to the patient other than the underlying pneumonic disorder, and no further measures had to be taken. Michael is receiving precisely the same treatment as any ordinary patient in Austria would receive at the hospital for this disease”.
