Gonoshasthaya Kendra founder Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury will have to stay in hospital for several more days as he has been infected with another bacteria, a press statement said.

Office chief of Jatiya Oikya Front Jahangir Alam Mintu said this in the press statement on Saturday evening.

He said, ‘Dr Zafrullah now does not have corona infection. But another bacteria has been found in his body.’

He further said, ‘I met Dr Zafrullah on Saturday afternoon. Then he told me that the Drug Administration did injustice with people’s right without giving approval of Gonoshasthaya kits. The next step over the kits will be taken through discussion all concerned.’

Jahangir Alam Mintu said, ‘Dr Zafrullah has still been suffering from fever. He speaks very slowly. He is taking antibiotics and doing kidney dialysis regularly. He is now very weak. But he does not have oxygen now.’

Dr Zafrullah is currently undergoing treatment at Gonoshasthaya Nagar hospital in the capital.
