The physical condition of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, undergoing treatment at Evercare Hospital in the city, is stable, her personal physician AZM Zahid Hossain said on Wednesday.
“Madam’s physical condition is now stable and it has improved a little compared to the day she was ad-mitted to the hospital,” he said.
The physician said the medical board members, headed by Professor Sahabuddin Talukder, reviewed the reports of various medical tests of the BNP chief.
“They’re giving her necessary treatment based on the test reports and her physical condition.”
Dr Zahid, also a BNP vice chairman, said the medical board is supposed to sit in a meeting in the after-noon to determine Khaleda’s next course of treatment.
In response to a question, he said that the BNP chairperson may have to stay in the hospital for a few more days.
She was admitted to Evercare Hospital in the city early Tuesday as she suddenly fell sick with fever and stomachache. Later, she underwent various medical examinations under the close supervision of her medical board at the hospital in the city’s Bashundhara area.
Khaleda, 78, has long been suffering from various ailments, including liver cirrhosis, arthritis, diabetes, kidney, lung, heart and eye problems. Since her conditional release in 2020, the BNP chief has been re-ceiving treatment at the hospital under a medical board headed by cardiologist Prof Shahabuddin Taluk-der.
