The doctors who treated former GRU officer Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia do not know their long-term perspective of the health after the poisoning. Moreover, they were afraid that everything will be even worse as Reuters reported.
'The honest answer is we don’t know', Christine Blanshard, the head of the hospital said.
Also, the doctors suspected that the Skripals suffer from the overdose of the opioid before the diagnosis changed.
'All the evidence was there that they would not survive', Stephen Jukes, the intensive care consultant who treated the Skripals a week after they arrived at the hospital said.
As we reported on March 29, Yulia Skripal recovers rapidly and her health state is not critical anymore. Later Sky News reported that she can feed and drink herself. The authorities expect that the affected will be able to testify soon.
Yulia Skripal was discharged from the hospital on April 9.
Ex-colonel of Russia’s GRU, Chief Intelligence Department, Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia, poisoned in the center of Salisbury town in the evening of March 4, are still struggling for life in the intensive care unit of the local hospital. The British special services suppose that Skripals were poisoned by his ex-colleague Andrey Lugovoy, who acted on orders from Moscow.
