BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday said their party remains active in ensuring its Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s advanced treatment abroad.

"Our party’s efforts are on in this regard [convincing the government to give her permission]. We will let you know if there is any progress over the matter,” he said during a press conference at the BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office. 

“She is now feeling better," he said when journalists wanted to know about the party's initiative to send Khaleda abroad for advanced treatment for her heart, lung, kidneys and other health complications.

Fakhrul also said all members of her medical team meet Khaleda one day every week and evaluate her condition.

On June 19, Khaleda Zia got back home from the capital’s Evercare Hospital after 53 days of treatment for Covid-19 and other physical complications.

The 76-year-old BNP chief, who had tested positive for Covid-19 on April 11, was admitted to Evercare Hospital on April 27.

She tested negative for Covid-19 on May 8, 27 days after she had been infected with the virus.

Her family submitted an application to the government on May 6 seeking permission to send her abroad for advanced treatment, but it was turned down.

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, the government freed Khaleda Zia from jail for six months through an executive order suspending her sentences on March 25 last year.
