BNP Chairperson and former prime minister of the country Begum Khaleda Zia is infected with coronavirus, said the health directorate.
It was informed that a medical report published on April 11 said the result of Begum Khaleda Zia’s corona test sample came out as ‘positive’. But Khaleda Zia’s personal physician and her nephew Dr. Mamun said, it is not true. I regularly check her up. Part of the regular check up her blood samples are tested. As part of that to collect the blood sample I went to ‘Firoza’ along with the technician. It is not part of corona test procedures. It is nothing but confusion created over her corona test result.
Meanwhile, in the report of corona test result it was seen that the sample was deposited for testing on April 10 at the ICDDR,B laboratory. Later the sample was tested in the RT PCR method.
On the other hand, Senior Information Officer of health ministry Maidul Islam Prodhan said that he has talked to the health directorate. From there it was confirmed that Begum Khaleda Zia is corona positive.
Sources said, Begum Khaleda Zia was suffering from fever for the last several days. To determine whether she is infected with coronavirus or not her blood sample was collected from her Gulshan residence ‘Firoza’ on Saturday afternoon.
