BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia, who was infected with coronavirus, will be taken to the hospital today for a medical check-up.
She will be taken to Evercare Hospital in the capital on Tuesday night.
A letter signed by Khaleda Zia’s private secretary ABM Abdus Sattar has been sent to the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner’s Office to take security and necessary measures to get to and from the hospital.
Khaleda Zia’s physician Dr. FM Siddiqui said Khaleda Zia’s second Covid-19 test report came positive and she needs to do some more tests. So, she will be taken to the hospital today. Khaleda Zia will undergo a CT scan at the hospital today.
Khaleda Zia underwent a CT scan at Evercare Hospital on the night of April 15. Then her personal doctors said that Khaleda Zia had a “very minimal” infection in her lungs on a CT scan which doesn’t really fall into the mild stage. As a result, new antibiotics have been added to Khaleda Zia’s previous medicines.
Khaleda Zia was tested positive for the coronavirus on April 11. Besides her, eight other personal staff of the residence ‘Firoza’ were also infected. Their treatment is going on at home.
