BNP chairperson returns home from hospital

25 June 2022


Staff Reporter :
BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia returned home from the city's Evercare Hospital on Friday evening after 14-day.
Khaleda's physicians said that the former Prime Minister is still sick and her treatment will be continued.
The BNP chief left the hospital at about 5:40 pm and reached her Gulshan residence around 6:10 pm.
Khaleda (76) has been suffering from various health-related complications including arthritis, diabetes, as well as dental and eye problems.
Earlier in a press conference, the medical board formed to ensure Khaleda's treatment said the ailing BNP chief was discharged from the hospital due to a risk of Covid infection as the virus cases are on the rise again in the country.
Dr Shahabuddin Talukder, the head of the medical board, told journalists, "She (Khaleda) is ill but her condition is stable. Bleeding complication is very challenging right now. As Covid-19 situation is getting worse, we don't want to keep her there in the hospital. There's a chance of Covid and other infections if she now stays here."
He said if she (Khaleda) gets Covid-19 infection then her condition will be critical. "So, the medical board has decided to take her home and continue treatment in her residence."
The physician said, "If she faces any complications further, she will be admitted to the hospital immediately."
"We have overcome her kidney complications. There are still two blockages in her coronary arteries," he said.
Prof Shahabuddin said Khaleda will have to be kept under full monitoring though she is going to stay at home.
He said the doctors will ensure her proper treatment at her residence.
Khaleda was admitted to Evercare Hospital on June 10 as she complained of chest pain.
Later, doctors said she suffered a heart attack due to 95 per cent blockage in her left artery and a stent was placed there by removing the blockage."
Two more blockages were found in the arteries of the BNP chairperson through a coronary angiogram.
She was shifted to a cabin from the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) on June 15.
The former prime minister was sent to jail on February 8, 2018 in a corruption case. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, she was given temporary release on March 25 last year on certain conditions. The term of her release has been extended four times so far.
