Freedom fighter and Ekushey Padak winner magician Jewel Aich, who recently contracted Covid-19, is being treated at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in the capital.

 His wife Bipasha Aich confirmed the news to the media on Tuesday night.

She said Jewel Aich had been suffering from fever since November 4. His fever level continued to rise so he underwent the Covid-19 test upon doctor’s advice, as well as a CT scan of the chest. The test report came out positive and showed that his lungs have also been infected.

Bipasha informed that the magician was taken to a hospital in the capital on Monday morning due to his deteriorating condition. However, his family decided to change the hospital due to unsatisfactory service.

He was then admitted to the CMH on Tuesday afternoon, and Bipasha expressed gratitude towards the hospital authorities for taking prompt action.

Born to BK Aich and Saraju Aich on April 10, 1950, in Barisal, Jewel Aich took part as a combat soldier in the Liberation War and also served in a non-combatant role, teaching students in refugee camps alongside inspiring the freedom fighters.

Apart from being the most renowned and popular Bangladeshi magician, Jewel Aich is a skilled flutist, author, and ambassador to many humanitarian projects.
