Khaleda Zia at Evercare Hospital
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia went to Evercare Hospital in Dhaka on Monday afternoon.
She left for Evercare Hospital at 4:15 pm and reached the hospital at 5:30 pm for health check-ups.
Khaleda’s personal physician Dr AZM Zahid Hossain said the BNP chief will undergo routine health check-ups in the hospital. The medical board formed earlier, led by Prof Shahabuddin Talukder, advised her to go to the hospital, he said.
The medical board will decide her next course of treatment after assessing her health condition and test reports.
Khaleda, a 78-year-old former prime minister, has been suffering from various ailments, including liver cirrhosis, arthritis, diabetes, kidney, lung, heart, and eye problems.
She received treatment at the same hospital six times since she was infected with Coronavirus in April, 2021.
In November 2021, Khaleda Zia was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis.
On June 10 last, the BNP chief suffered a heart attack due to a 95 percent block in her left artery and a stent was placed there by removing the blockage at the same hospital the following day.
Doctors also found two more blocks in her blood vessels, but they could not remove those due to her health complications.
