TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has visited the hospital because he is getting treatment for chronic illness and not for a medical check-up, Nippon TV cited multiple unidentified government and ruling party sources as saying on Monday.
A motorcade carrying Abe arrived at a Tokyo hospital on Monday morning, his second visit in a week. The premier will receive the results of last week’s check-up, several local media reported.
Abe is scheduled to go to his office Monday afternoon, the Nippon TV report said.
