Dr. Likdola said the next 48 hours will be very critical, and that the young girl must remain under observation; where they will perform several medical tests to determine the required steps to be taken in the future.
He added that the most important exam is a special screening study to isolate genes L91, a gene associated to obesity.
He pointed out that the results of the tests are expected to show later in the day on Monday. She had traveled to India last Friday in a special flight that took off from Burj Al Arab International Airport in Egypt directly Mumbai, India.
