88% rating of the president's health

The Palace has recently been quoted as saying -- with specificity -- that the President's health is at 88%. Given the specificity by which the Palace and the President's official spokesperson has qualified the President's health, may I respectfully request for the basis for the 88% assessment in order that I may be enlightened and to finally put an end to seemingly baseless rumors that he is indeed unhealthy. I would like to believe my President is in tiptop condition to lead us through this pandemic. Seeing a highly specific and measured statement from the Palace is reassuring. Thanks
