Lord Fusitu’a’s health condition is deteriorating and he is “very slim,” a Ministry of Health source said this afternoon at 2pm.
He is “still on the ventilator. “
The source denied earlier reports on social media that the king’s noble has died from his illness.
It is understood his condition is now being monitored at Vaiola’s intensive care unit.
As Kaniva news reported yesterday, the source said “He is very sick,” but gave no further details.
Recent photos of Lord Fusitu’a shared on social media appeared to show the noble looked quite ill, according to observers.
The king’s noble and Member of Parliament was sent from Tonga to a New Zealand hospital last year after he reportedly fell over and broke his leg.
