BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia underwent health checkup at Evercare Hospital in the capital on Monday.

She arrived at the hospital from her Gulshan residence around 5:35 pm and stayed there for over one and a half hours, reports UNB quoting her media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan.

He said the BNP chairperson underwent several tests at the hospital as per the advice of her medical board.

The BNP chief left the hospital around 7: 13 pm and reached her residence at 8:22 pm, he said.

Khaleda's personal physician AZM Zahid Hossain said the medical board formed earlier, led by Prof Shahabuddin Talukder, advised her to go under the health check-ups at the hospital.

"She underwent various necessary medical tests at the hospital. The test reports will be available by tomorrow (Tuesday)," he said.

Zahid said the medical board will decide her next course of treatment after assessing her health condition and test reports. Asked about Khaleda's physical condition, he said, "Her condition is as before and it remains unchanged."

Khaleda, a 77-year-old former prime minister, has been suffering from various ailments, including liver cirrhosis, arthritis, diabetes, kidney, lung, heart, and eye problems.

She received treatment at the same hospital six times since she was infected with Coronavirus in April, 2021. In November 2021, Khaleda Zia was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis.
