Khaleda to be taken to Evercare Hospital again today

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia will be taken to Evercare Hospital again on Saturday for follow-up treatment, nearly a week after she was discharged from the same hospital.

“Madam [Khaleda] will be taken to Evercare Hospital around 3pm today (Saturday) for follow-up treatment and health checkups. All the arrangements have been made in this regard at the hospital,” said the BNP chief’s media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan.

On Oct 12, Khaleda was admitted to Evercare Hospital for the second time with fever and some other health complications.

She returned home on November 7 from the hospital after treatment for 26 days.

Khaleda’s doctors said they discharged Khaleda from the hospital as her condition improved.

On October 25, the BNP chief underwent a surgery and biopsy test at Evercare Hospital as she had a small lump in one part of her body.

Later, her biopsy report was sent to the USA and the UK for review and no sign of cancer was detected.

The BNP chief’s doctors said she has been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, ophthalmological and dental complications.

Her family applied to the government twice in May and August this year seeking permission to take her abroad for better treatment, but the government turned it down saying there is no scope for a convicted person to avail of such a scope.

Earlier on April 27, Khaleda was admitted to Evercare Hospital with Covid infections. She received treatment there until June 19 for post-Covid complications and some other underlying health problems.
