According to News18, he is expected to recover in one or two days. The report also said that Kauvery Hospital is yet to give an official medical statement regarding the health of the DMK patriarch.

Karunanidhi was reportedly treated at his residence in Chennai on Wednesday after he caught fever due to urinary infection. Later, Kauvery Hospital released a statement saying that there was a “slight decline” in his health. However, Stalin had slammed all rumours regarding Karunanidhi’s health on Thursday.

According to Zee News, Stalin had said that his father had a mild fever and nothing more. "Don't believe them. These are rumours,” he had told reporters outside his residence in Gopalapuram, Chennai, on Thursday.

Many politicians have been visiting 94-year-old Karunanidhi since Thursday to wish him well. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also tweeted saying that he spoke to Stalin and Karunanidhi’s daughter Kanimozhi and enquired about his health.

West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee wished Karunanidhi a quick recovery in a tweet. Tamil Nadu’s deputy chief minister O Panneerselvam and actor-turned-politician Kamal Hassan also visited the DMK chief.
