A Bangladesh Air Force helicopter on Wednesday airlifted COVID-19 infected Habiganj-3 lawmaker Md Abu Jahir to Dhaka.

Inter Service Public Relations in a statement said that the BAF airlifted the lawmaker as part of its emergency airlifting and MEDEVAC services, which it was providing to help the civil administration tackle coronavirus situation.

Lawmaker Jahir was undergoing treatment in Habiganj after getting infected with the novel coronavirus.

He was airlifted to Combined Military Hospital in Dhaka for better treatment by an MI-171 SH helicopter after his condition had deteriorated, said the ISPR.
