BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia's CT scan report of coronavirus has come good, said her personal doctor Dr. AZM Zahid Hossain. He also said that his treatment will be at home.

He made the remarks after returning to Gulshan from the hospital after the BNP chairperson's examination at Evercare Hospital on Thursday night (April 15).

He said his report was much, much better. There are findings in the periodic report that clinically we can think of as extremely minimal. The treatment that is needed for her will now be given at home. I have explained this before. But tomorrow they will give a full report and then it will be understood.

Dr. AZM Zahid said that all kinds of measures have been taken by the party and the family. As it is the seventh day, it cannot be said to be safe yet. It can be said after 12 to 14 days. We have constant observation. X-rays used to be done to detect lung infections but now CT scans are done. It understands everything well which is not understood on a normal X-ray. However, the CT scan report has come out much better. The symptoms of corona that are present in other patients were not Madame's.

Dr. Zahid said, "Our doctors wanted to see what was wrong with Madame's lungs,". So today her CT scan was done at the hospital. The initial report I received showed that Madame had a very minimal infection in her lungs. Discussing with Tareq Rahman and his wife Zobaida Rahman further action will be taken after consulting foreign doctors including Zobaida Rahman. We need to monitor her physical condition closely. It will continue for the next 14 days.

Earlier, Khaleda Zia, who was infected with coronavirus, was taken to the hospital at 9.15 pm for a CT scan. All members of the private medical team were present with her at the hospital. The car carrying him entered Ever Care Hospital at around 10.45 am. Her CT scan was done around 10 o'clock.

This afternoon, a team of doctors led by Chest Disease and Medicine Specialist Professor FM Siddiqui visited Khaleda Zia at her home in Firoza, Gulshan. He said he would come out and have a CT scan on an emergency basis.

Last Saturday (April 10) the corona test report came positive. In addition to her, 8 more people were infected in that house.
