Turkey Rejects Reports Erdogan Suffering Heart Attack

The administration of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vehemently denied reports on Wednesday that the president had suffered a heart attack, according to the Center Against Disinformation.

Earlier media reports indicated that Erdogan had suffered a heart attack shortly after mentioning his stomach flu; however, there was not enough evidence to support this.

The Center tweeted that reports on social media about President Erdogan having a heart attack and being hospitalized are not true.

Oktay, the Turkish Vice President, assured the media that President Erdogan is in good health, informing that “The state of health of our president is very good. We are in constant contact. He had a mild cold,” according to Sputnik.

Late Tuesday, Erdogan’s interview on a local broadcaster was abruptly cut short as the Turkish leader reported feeling unwell during the live program. After a considerable interval, which caused a stir on social media, Erdogan declared that he had contracted the stomach flu while actively campaigning. Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin then assured that Erdogan was in good health.

It was announced that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan would be attending the ceremony for nuclear fuel loading at Turkey’s Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) remotely on April 27, and that a Thursday rally would be postponed. This news has been met with recent comments.
