CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuela's government says President Hugo Chavez is conscious and responding to treatment for a respiratory infection at a Cuban hospital.
Information Minister Ernesto Villegas says the infection has been controlled, but Chavez is still suffering from respiratory deficiency.
Chavez has been fighting the infection after undergoing a fourth round of surgery Dec. 11 for a cancer in the pelvic area.
Villegas spoke about the president's condition during a televised address Sunday.
