Update : 31 Mar 2024, 10:40

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has been admitted to Evercare Hospital in the capital as her health conditions deteriorated midnight. 

"She was taken to the hospital around 3am [today] on advice of the medical board," said Shamsuddin Dider, an official of the BNP chairperson's media wing.

Before this, Khaleda Zia's health condition worsened slightly last Wednesday (27 March). Medical board members visited her residence in Gulshan and have been treating her at home. 

The 78-year-old former prime minister has long been suffering from various ailments, including liver cirrhosis, arthritis, diabetes, and issues related to kidney, lungs, heart, and eyes.

Khaleda Zia was admitted to Evercare Hospital on March 13. She returned to her Gulshan residence the next day after undergoing a health check-up.

Khaleda Zia was in and out of CCU several times last year.

On 9 August last year, she was admitted to the Evercare Hospital. In October, three doctors from the United States' Johns Hopkins Hospital arrived in Dhaka to treat Khaleda as part of an emergency intervention.

After receiving treatment for over five months, the BNP chairperson returned to her home in Gulshan on 11 January this year.
