Khaleda going home to avoid Covid risk: Medical board
BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia is going to home from hospital to avoid the higher risk of coronavirus infection, said Prof Dr Fakhruddin Mohammad Siddiqui, the chief of the medical board formed by the party for her treatment.
But her treatment will continue under the supervision of the medical board formed at Evercare Hospital in the capital for her care, he said at a press conference at the facility on Tuesday evening.
"In examinations, we have seen that it has possibly been able to stop her major bleeding for the time being but there is no certainty that she won't bleed again in near future," Dr Fakhruddin said.
Earlier on November 28 last year, the BNP formed medical board said the former prime minister was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis that caused her bleeding.
At that time, the board also recommended treating Khaleda in a specialized hospital in the UK, US, or Germany as soon as possible.
Khaleda Zia has, however, been receiving treatment at Evercare Hospital in the capital with various complications.
