The BNP chairperson was admitted to the hospital on April 1
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, who was admitted to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Hospital back in April, is in good health, says the hospital’s Director Brigadier General A K M Mahbubul Haque.
"She has recovered well after being admitted here. She is healthy and she is keeping her fasts," he said.
He spoke about her health at a press briefing on Wednesday around 11am.
"Recently, news of Khaleda Zia's ill-health has been published in the media. In view of this we thought the media should be informed about her physical condition.
"On April 1, Khaleda Zia was admitted to the hospital with various physical problems. She has been here for one month and 29 days."
The problems that she had brought on the day of admission, have improved greatly in the last two months," BSMMU Director said.
"A few days ago, some media—without informing us—telecasted news saying 'Khaleda Zia is at the edge of life and death.' Her condition here was never that bad.
"Her body has chronic diseases, diabetes, arthritis; which have improved quite a bit."
"Physical weakness has decreased a lot, too. She is receiving regular treatment including insulin treatment," A K M Mahbubul Haque said.
"Khaleda Zia had a fungal infection on her tongue. Ninety percent of this infection is gone. We will still refer her to a dentist," BSMMU Director said.
