Khaleda to be taken to hospital tonight for tests

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, who was infected with coronavirus, will be taken to Evercare Hospital tonight (Tuesday night) for some medical tests, including CT scan, said her personal medical team member Dr AZM Zahid Hossain.

"Madam (Khaleda) will be taken to Evercare Hospital around 8 pm for a few tests, including CT scan. All the arrangements have been made in this regard at the hospital,” he said.

Zahid said the BNP chief will return to her Gulshan house right after the tests.

He said though Khaleda tested positive for Civid during the second test on April 24, she has no symptoms of the virus.

On April 14, Khaleda was taken to the Evercare Hospital for the CT scan and later doctors said a very nominal infection was found in her lungs.

Khaleda Zia tested positive for Covid-19 on April 10 as eight people at her residence were infected with the virus.

She underwent the second Covid-19 test on April 24 and her report came out to be positive.
