Road transport and bridges minister Obaidul Quader was shifted to a cabin from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a Singapore hospital on Wednesday after his condition improved further.
“He is doing well,” said professor Abu Nasar Rizvi of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), reports news agency UNB.
“Physicians are preparing to conduct a bypass surgery next week,” he added.
His condition has been improving gradually over the last few days and the minister was able to walk on Monday.
Quader, also the general secretary of ruling Bangladesh Awami League, was admitted to BSMMU on 3 March following breathing complications but tests revealed three blockages in his coronary artery.
He was flown to Singapore the next day for treatment at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital.
Cardiothoracic surgeon Sivathasan Cumaraswamy, a member of the medical board treating Quader, also briefed his family members about his improvement.
