The health condition of Gonoshasthaya Kendra founder Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury, who tested positive for coronavirus, has improved slightly.
“It seems Sir’s (Zafrullah’s) condition has improved slightly as the ventilator was taken off after an hour. He’s been now given the oxygen support,” Gonoshasthaya Kendra Public Relations Officer Forhad Hossain said this on Saturday afternoon.
He said Zafrullah’s fever has gone down, but he has still breathing problem. “He’ll be kept under close observation of the doctors for the next two/three days.
Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury’s physical condition deteriorated a little as he developed breathing complications two days ago.
He has been receiving treatment at Gonoshasthaya Nagar Hospital in the city’s Dhanmondi area.
Zafrullah, also a freedom fighter, underwent coronavirus test with the kit developed by Gonoshasthaya which found him to be positive. Later, a RT-PCR test at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) also found him positive for coronavirus.
