Prof Dr ABM Abdullah, the personal physician to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, has been diagnosed with Covid-19.

Dr Abdullah, a retired professor of medicine in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), is currently receiving treatment in a hospital in the capital.

He himself confirmed the matter to the news outlets after receiving the results of his test samples on Tuesday.

Abdullah said there were no major physical complexities but he was just feeling weak. Earlier, he had been suffering from cold-related complications and mild fever.

The Ekushey Padak winner was appointed as the Prime Minister’s personal physician on December 24, 2019. He had joined the BSMMU in 1995 as an assistant professor. He was the professor and dean of the medicine department of the university.
