Khaleda Zia shifted to cabin from CCU

Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Chairperson Khaleda Zia, who is now undergoing treatment at Evercare Hospital in the capital, has been shifted to cabin from CCU as her health condition improved.

Khaleda Zias has been shifted to cabin from the CCU in the afternoon on Thursday, says the BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

The 76-year-old BNP chief, who tested positive for Covid-19 for the second time on April 24, was admitted to Evercare Hospital on April 27 for a thorough health checkup.

She was shifted to the CCU of the hospital with shortness of breath on May 3.

On April 28, a 10-member medical board, headed by Prof Shahabuddin Talukder, was formed for the treatment of Khaleda at the Evercare Hospital a day after her admission there.

Khaleda Zia tested positive for Covid-19 on April 10 as eight people at her residence were infected with the virus. She underwent the second Covid-19 test on April 24 and her report was positive.

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, the government freed Khaleda Zia from jail for six months through an executive order suspending her sentences on March 25 last year.
