Michael Schumacher’s health is reportedly not improving as one would have hoped after his severe head injury in the Swiss Alps. Recent update suggested that his neurosurgeon was not optimistic regarding any health improvements and that only a “miracle” could save the 47-year-old.
The German is currently under medical supervision at his home on the shores of Lake Geneva. Despite receiving round the clock treatment by highly experienced doctors, the recovery of the seven-time world champion hasn’t been swift. Moreover, owing to a media blackout by the Schumacher family, news has been scarce regarding his health.
Since the reveal of Schumacher’s latest condition was made by an unnamed source, fans have been aching to get some more information on the German racing legend. The recent report of Schumacher needing a “miracle” are exactly opposite to what his manager Sabine Kehm mentioned earlier.
Kehm made a statement which highlighted the German racing sensation “making progress”. She went on to mention that the progress was not quick enough and asked the fans to be realistic of their expectations, according to TVNZ.
It is a great mystery for the news publications and fans alike as to why the Schumacher family is concealing the news of his health when everyone is so desperate to know about it. Recent reveal by the unnamed source could possibly highlight the fact that the family doesn’t want any disheartening news reaching the public.
If Schumacher’s health is in need of a “miracle” to improve, then it could be considered that his family has already started giving up on his recovery. If there was indeed any signs of recovery, some official news would have been made available by his family.
Recently, F1 legend Niki Lauda came out to share his views on the incident. Although he backed the media blackout, he suggested that there should be a “middle ground” in terms of communication to eliminate any false tabloid journalism, as reported by Sky.
