Khaleda Zia returns home from hospital after 5 months

  • January 11, 2024

Khaleda Zia, the chairperson of the BNP, was finally released from Evercare Hospital in Dhaka on Thursday, after being there for five months for treatment. Shirin Kabir Khan, a member of the BNP’s media cell, said that Khaleda was released from the hospital around 5 PM and is on her way back to her home in Gulshan. She will continue to get care from home, he said.

When she got sick on August 9, she was taken to Evercare Hospital. Since then, the BNP leader has been getting care there for a number of health problems.

The 78-year-old former prime minister has had many health problems for a long time, such as cirrhosis of the liver, arthritis, diabetes, and problems with his kidneys, lungs, heart, and eyes. Ever since Khaleda was identified with liver cirrhosis in November 2021, her doctors have said she should be sent abroad to get better.

The BNP chief’s family has also asked the government for permission to go abroad more than once, but the government says she can’t because she was freed from jail on the condition that she stay in her Gulshan home and not leave the country.
