Medical board to review Khaleda’s health condition today: Doctor

The 10-member medical board, formed to ensure the treatment of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, is going to sit in a meeting on Tuesday at Evercare Hospital to review her health condition.

Khaleda Zia was shifted to the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) of the hospital with breathing problems on Monday with breathing difficulties.

“"Madam’s condition is fine as her breathing difficulties eased. The 10-member medical board will examine all the test reports today (Tuesday),” said Mohammad Al Mamun, Khaleda’s personal physician and one of the medical board members.

“I’m now going to Evercare Hospital to join the medical board meeting,” he told UNB around 1pm.

Replying to a question, Mamun said the medical board will review her current condition and give an opinion on whether she needs treatment abroad.

Meanwhile, a BNP senior leader wishing anonymity said Khaleda’s family wants to take her aboard for advanced treatment, and they are now trying to get the government’s permission in this regard.

He also said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir talked to the Home Minister on Monday about their party chief’s health condition and treatment aboard.

However, neither Fakhrul nor Khaleda’s sister Selima Rahman could be reached over the phone for their comments on the matter.
