"Lungs decongestion treatment is being continued. All the other comprehensive measures including nutrition, supportive therapy and passive physiotherapy are under way," he said.

The 68-year-old chief minister was admitted to the hospital on September 22 for "fever and dehydration". In subsequent health bulletins, the hospital said Ms Jayalalithaa was "responding well to the treatment" but has been advised "a few more days" under observation.
