Gonoshasthaya Kendra founder Zafrullah Chowdhury’s physical condition deteriorated and became so critical that he could be taken to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University Hospital for having CT Scan test, said Gonoshasthaya Kendra officials on Wednesday.

Gonoshasthaya Samaj Vittik Medical College vice-principal Mohib Ullah Khandoker said that Zafrullah Chowdhury was very weak as he had been suffering from different health complications.

He said that Zafrullah was suffering from secondary pneumonia since Sunday and his condition did not improve.

‘Zafrullah’s health condition deteriorates,’ said Mohib Ullah.

The freedom fighter was undergoing treatment at Gonoshasthaya Nagar Hospital after he was infected with COVID-19.

Zafrullah recovered from COVID-19 but was suffering from other illness, including pneumonia and kidney diseases.

On May 24, Zafrullah was detected with COVID-19 in a GK’s Rapid Dot Blot kit test. He was tested PCR again and same result was found.

On June 4, Zafrullah’s health condition deteriorated for some respiratory problems.

On June 13, Zafrullah was tested negative for COVID-19, but he had suffered from pneumonia since June 16, a day after he went to pay his last tribute to Awami League leader Mohammad Nasim.

GK in a press release requested country people to pray for him.
