Ailing Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad’s internal organs were not improving according to expectations, his brother and the party’s acting Chairman GM Quader said yesterday.
Briefing media about Ershad’s latest health condition at the JP chairman’s Banani office, he quoted doctors at Combined Military Hospital -- where Ershad is undergoing treatment since June 26 -- saying his brother’s health condition was not “out of danger”.
“At present, his blood has no infection. However, his other organs are not improving to the expectation,” he said.
Quader said Ershad’s body was responding to treatment, and he will be treated in life support until he recovers. The 89-year old opposition leader in parliament was put on life support on July 4.
He had been suffering from health issues for the last couple of months.
