Mohammed Nasim still in ‘very critical state’
Former health minister and Awami League MP Mohammed Nasim's health condition remains unchanged and he is in "very critical state" now.
Kanak Kanti Barua, vice chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University and also the chief of medical board formed to oversee the treatment of Nasim, told The Daily Star.
Infected with Covid-19 and later suffering a stroke, Nasim went into a "deep coma" as his condition deteriorated further last night. He is undergoing treatment at the Bangladesh Specialised Hospital at Dhaka's Shyamoli.
Nasim's son Tanvir Shakil Joy, also a former Awami League MP, told media on Friday that his father had undergone a successful surgery after suffering a stroke.
On June 1, Nasim was admitted to Bangladesh Specialised Hospital as he was feeling unwell. Later, he tested positive for coronavirus.
