A doctor of the Khulna Medical College Hospital (KMCH) has been airlifted to Dhaka as his condition deteriorated after being diagnosed with Covid-19.

A Bangladesh Air Force helicopter carrying KMCH Urologist Masud Ahmed arrived Dhaka around 10pm on Thursday, ISPR Director Lt Col Abdullah Ibn Zayed told the Dhaka Tribune. 

He was then taken to the Mugda General Hospital, one of the several facilities in Dhaka dedicated for coronavirus patients, he said. 

Masud’s test came back positive on April 18 after he complained of fever, sore throat and cough, KMCH Principal Abdul Ahad told the UNB.

The KMCH assistant professor had been receiving treatment at the rest house of the hospital, he said.

As his condition worsened, he was shifted to Dhaka by an air force helicopter around 9pm from Khulna, Deputy Commissioner Helal Hossain told UNB.
