BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia shifted to CCU with breathing problems

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, admitted to Evercare Hospital last week with Covid infection, was shifted to the coronary care unit (CCU) of the hospital on Monday with breathing problems.

She was taken to Critical Care Unit (CCU) of the hospital at Bashundhara Residential Area in the capital following breathing problem at 2pm on Monday.

Earlier on Sunday, a member of the 10-member medical team told New Age that Khaleda Zia might require staying in hospital for more days as physicians were treating her for other complications alongside post-Covid-19 complications.

She is going through ups and downs of the physical condition.

Although she was diagnosed with corona infection a few weeks ago, she seemed to have no physical complications.

This is for the first time that she is suffering from suffocation today.

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, the government freed Khaleda Zia from jail for six months through an executive order suspending her sentences on March 25 last year.

She was released from the prison cell of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) the same day, and she has been staying at her Gulshan house since then.

On August 27 last year, the government extended her release for six more months and it was extended again for six months on March 15 last.
