Haiti's newly appointed prime minister admitted to hospital in 'stable' condition

Even if it didn't happen in America, the health of a leader of an entire country is of interest to us because of the impact it can have on our lives.

No country likes instability at the top of their government, but that's exactly what's happening in Haiti.

Their newly appointed prime minister, Garry Conille, was admitted to a hospital in Port-au-Prince, where he was reported "to be stable after feeling slightly unwell following a week of demanding activities."

Louis Gérald Gilles, a member of the transitional presidential council that appointed Conille prime minister, confirmed the reports.

Gilles confirmed that Conille had been admitted to the hospital, but could not add much more information than that.

The AP has been the primary source of information on this story:

It may have been relatively serious, as it's being reported that many important people in Haiti took time out of their schedules to travel to visit Conille in the hospital.

The Daily Caller reports that "several high-ranking officials, including Frantz Elbé, director of Haiti’s National Police, and Bruno Maes, UNICEF’s representative in Haiti, visited the hospital."

Conille has a lot of friends in Haiti's government because this is actually the second time he's served as the country's prime minister, first holding the spot from 2011 to 2012.

Garry Conille assumed his position just a short time ago at the end of May, so this is very concerning to a country that isn't exactly known for its political, economic, and social stability.

Conille's term follows the abrupt resignation of former prime minister Ariel Henry, who fled to Los Angeles in April and submitted his resignation letter from there:

"We served the nation in difficult times," Henry's resignation said. "I sympathize with the losses and suffering endured by our compatriots during this period."
