Citing physicians at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH), Jatiya Party (JaPa) acting chairman GM Quader has said the party Chairman HM Ershad's health condition has deteriorated.

“Currently he [Ershad] has been put on oxygen support,” GM Quader said in a press briefing at the party’s Banani office in Dhaka Sunday evening.

“His health condition improved by 50% as of Saturday but again started to deteriorate since Sunday morning. Doctors found infection in his lungs put him on oxygen support,” he said.

In response to a journalist’s query about taking Ershad abroad for better treatment, GM Quader said: “We are still considering every option but ultimately it depends on the physicians’ advice. Doctors at CMH are confident and hoping for the improvement in his health condition.”

Senior party leaders were also present at the press briefing.

Ershad was admitted to the CMH Wednesday morning. He has been suffering from multiple ailments for the last nine months and received treatment from abroad at different times.
