Md Saiduzzaman, lecturer of anatomy at the Jessore Medical College, who was infected with the novel coronavirus, has been airlifted to a Dhaka hospital for better treatment.

A helicopter of Bangladesh Air Force took the 32-year-old doctor to the Mugda Medical College and Hospital in Dhaka Wednesday night.

Confirming the matter, Jessore Civil Surgeon Sheikh Abu Shaheen said Dr Saiduzzaman was diagnosed with the coronavirus on Tuesday. 

Subsequently, he was admitted to the Jessore Ibne Sina Hospital. However, when his health deteriorated around 8pm Wednesday, he was airlifted to Dhaka within the next hour.

“Along with shortness of breath, Saiduzzaman’s oxygen saturation level was fluctuating uncontrollably. For this reason, he was taken to Dhaka for better treatment,” said the civil surgeon.

Bangladesh Air Force has been providing emergency Air Transport and Medical Evacuation (MEDEVAC) mission to the civil administration on a regular basis to combat the coronavirus, an ISPR press release said.  

Through the Medical Evacuation (MEDEVAC) mission, Bangladesh Air Force is playing a vital role in helping coronavirus infected patients from any region of the country to receive advanced medical care at the earliest, added the release.
