As has been the case for the last four or five days, there isn’t any new news regarding Michael Schumacher’s health. The seven-time Formula One World Champion remains in a medically induced coma, with the situation still considered critical.
A statement from University Center Hospital in Grenoble, France on Monday provided an update, which more or less continued the reiteration that there won’t be updates unless there is new news. On Saturday, Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm warned against any false or invalid reports.
“The clinical state of Michael Schumacher is stable as he’s under permanent care and treatment,” Grenoble hospital said in the statement. “However, the medical team in charge stresses that it continues to assess his situation as critical.”
“The privacy of the statement demands that we are not going into details of his treatment, and this is why we do not plan any press conferences, nor give out written press releases, anymore for the time being,” the statement added.
“We again insistently ask you to…stick to the information given by the medical team in charge of the patient or his management, as this is the only valid information.”
The next potential piece of news that could emerge is the status of an alleged mobile-phone video taken of the skiing accident itself. Per the Associated Press, a French state prosecutor said he wants to obtain that if possible. A further update on that front could occur mid-week.
