Chinese President Xi Jinping may to be suffering from a ‘cerebral aneurysm’ and had reportedly sought treatment a few months ago. While no official confirmation has come in, there has been speculations about his health for quite some time now. The claims also come at a time when Beijing is battling a major COVID-19 outbreak and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) chief is eyeing a third term in office.
According to reports, the Chinese premier had been hospitalised towards the end of 2021. He had however opted out of surgery, preferring to be treated with traditional Chinese medicines that would soften the blood vessels and shrink an aneurysm.
