China's Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobao's health condition has worsened. On Jul.12, the hospital where Liu has been treated stated that Liu's condition is now life threatening with multiple organ failure. The hospital said doctors informed Liu's family of the need for a tracheotomy to keep him alive, but they declined. Several foreign governments continued to call for him to be freed on humanitarian grounds. President Tsai Ing-wen also joined the chorus of pleas, calling on Beijing to let Liu choose the country of his favor to receive cancer treatment Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobao, who was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer, has been refused permission to receive cancer treatment overseas by China. Although the international society called on China to release Liu, China dismissed the appeal. Outside the hospital, there were even police on guard. == GENG SHUANG Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman== We hope the country in question can respect China's judicial sovereignty and does not use so-called individual cases to interfere in China's internal politics. China has reacted sensitively over Liu's case. News from foreign channels reporting Liu was cut off, and a lot of Chinese people have no idea of who Liu is. Those who know Liu are afraid to talk about him publicly. ==Chinese == Oh, that's because he is Liu Xiaobo. (What is your comment on him?) Well, um…... you know what I am thinking about, right? Wall Street Journal said that China is using medical parole as an alternative to prison, since it denied requests to let Liu seek treatment abroad. The newspaper also said that China uploaded videos of Liu being visited by doctors from other countries on the Internet to mislead the international society. However, this violated patient privacy. ==LIU RUI SHAO Hong Kong political == What Liu Xiaobo said outside China is beyond the Chinese government's control. There has been an increasing trend for Chinese people to fight for democracy and human rights. China nipped these in the bud. On Jul.12, the hospital said that Liu's condition has worsened. Although Liu received emergency treatment, he is still suffering from multiple organ failure and septic shock.
