Ministry: Mubarak only suffered morning dizziness, body functions normal

Former President Hosni Mubarak's health condition is stable and has not deteriorated, Egypt's Health Ministry said Monday.

Egyptian news outlets had reported that Mubarak's heart stopped for two minutes on Sunday.

In a statement, Assistant Health Minister Adel al-Adawy said Mubarak has not been put on a respirator and is breathing normally. 

He is still in his room on the third floor of Sharm el-Sheikh International Hospital, Adawy said, adding that Mubarak only felt dizzy after getting out of bed at 6:30 am on Sunday due to low blood pressure and was given first aid right afterwards.

Adawy said Mubarak underwent routine checkups and was found to be normal; he did not need to be transferred to the Intensive Care Unit.

Ahram Online said Mubarak’s kidney and digestive functions are normal.
