No need to send UNO Wahida abroad right now: Health Minister

Health Minister Zahid Maleque on Sunday said there is no need to send Ghoraghat UNO Wahida Khanam abroad for better treatment at this moment but a decision in this regard will be taken later, if needed.

“Observing Wahida’s condition it appears she doesn’t need to be sent abroad right now. Doctors at the National Institute of Neurosciences & Hospital are taking good care of her. A decision in this regard will be taken later, if needed,” said the minister.

The Health Minister came up with the information while talking to reporters about the health condition of the UNO at the hospital in the morning.

“The 72-hour observation by the doctors at the hospital will end on Monday morning and no symptom of any infection has been reported yet. The patient is undergoing treatment under good management and everything is going well. Everything needed for her treatment will be provided,” he said.

The minister went on saying, “UNO Wahida talked to me and I think her condition is better now. Eight doctors successfully operated on her injured parts for two and a half hours and the right side of her injured body is still paralysed. Doctors said it will be cured with physical therapy.”
