Khaleda was admitted to Evercare Hospital on April 27, three days after her second test for Covid-19 was positive. She first tested positive on April 11. She also has arthritis, diabetes and eye problems.

She was taken to the hospital's Coronary Care Unit with breathing difficulties Monday afternoon.

The  government released Khaleda from jail on March 25 last year, suspending  her sentence as per section 401 (1) of the Criminal Code of Procedure.  The suspension was later extended twice.

The BNP chairperson  landed in jail on February 8, 2018, after a special court sentenced her  to five years in prison in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case. On  October 30, 2018, the High Court raised her punishment to 10 years.
