New Delhi: The health condition of President Ram Nath Kovind is improving after his bypass surgery and he has been shifted from ICU to a special room in AIIMS on Saturday, according to the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

"President Kovind was shifted from the ICU to a special room in the AIIMS today. His health has been improving continuously. Doctors are constantly monitoring his condition and have advised him to take rest," the Rashtrapati Bhavan said in a tweet.
