The health condition of BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia, who was infected with coronavirus, has improved a little bit as her temperature showing a declining trend, her medical team head Dr FM Siddiqui confirmed the matter to media.
FM Siddiqui said this while talking to reporters in front of the BNP chief’s Gulshan residence after examining her health condition.
He said they think Begum Zia’s treatment is still possible at her home as her condition is stable with 97-98 percent oxygen level.
'We have examined her health condition. She’s been suffering from low fever for the last three days. Her temperature was persistent during the whole day and even yesterday (Friday) evening. But her temperature is showing a declining trend as she had no fever during the whole day today (Saturday). But the temperature increased a little bit in the evening,' the doctor said.
'Considering all the aspects, we can say her condition is still stable. If we compare her Friday’s level of temperature with Saturday’s, we find a little bit of improvement in her condition. But we should keep in mind that we should not evaluate the whole situation with only a parameter and we should always remin careful. We’re handling everything professionally with our medical skills and specialisation,' he said.
Dr FM Siddiqui also said that they found Begum Zia's temperature around 100.2°F at about 10:15 pm on Saturday.
We have started giving her the antiviral medicine and she has already received two doses of it. We also think the response to the medicine is positive. We’ve checked her blood circulation and respiration, and these are good. Her saturation level is always persistent between 97 and 98 percent, he added.
On the other hand, he also said that we’ll take necessary steps immediately if we get any danger signal or deterioration in her condition. As of now, we think, everything is fine. But we don’t want to show any leniency until a two-week period of her infection is passed off, and we’ll continue our,close monitoring.
