The physical state of ailing Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader remained stable as he is still in critical condition, a doctor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) hospital said today.
“Quader’s health condition remained stable and as yet, he is not out of danger,” Prof Syed Ali Ahsan, chairman of the cardiology department of the hospital, told newsmen this morning, local media reported.
Quader, also Bangladesh Awami League general secretary, has been kept on life support and put under doctors’ close observation, he said, adding “his treatment will continue in the country for the time being”.
Obaidul Quader was admitted to the BSMMU Hospital as he had breathing problem after Fajr prayers on Sunday (Mar 3).
He was diagnosed with three blockages in his coronary artery while one block had already been removed yesterday morning, according to the BSMMU physicians. A medical team was also formed.
The minister was first taken to BSMMU Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at 8.30 am on Sunday and then shifted to the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) of the hospital.
