"We are happy to announce that Mr. Michael is improving steadily with an impressive regression of pneumonic symptoms and follows a steady rate of improvement as hoped," doctors Gottfried Locker and Christoph Zielinski said in a statement. "There are no other health issues with regards to the patient other than the underlying pneumonic disorder, and no further measures had to be taken."

Michael's publicist confirms to E! News that "George is getting better and better."

However, due to his illness, Michael was forced last weekend to cancel the remaining dates of his Symphonica European tour.
