"Madam [Khaleda] underwent the fresh corona test this afternoon. She tested positive for the virus as we received her report at night," he said after visiting the BNP chief at her Gulshan residence in Dhaka.

He said eight other people who were infected with the virus at Khaleda's residence also underwent the test on Saturday. Five of them tested negative and the other three positives.

Zahid said the health conditions of all of them are stable.

Earlier in the day, Khaleda's personal physician Mohammad Al Mamun said the BNP chief underwent a fresh Covid-19 test to know whether she has recovered as she has been doing well with no visible symptoms.

Dr Zahid said Khaleda's body temperature is normal. "Her breathing and oxygen saturation level are good."
