Former Bangladesh PM Khaleda Zia on Sunday tested negative for COVID-19, media reports said.

She tested negative 27 days after she contracted the virus, IBNS said. 

Khaleda’s third test yielded a negative result, while the first and second test results were positive, Dr Muhammad Al Mamun, a member of the medical panel treating the BNP chief, told bdnews24.

A 10-member medical panel led by Dr Shahabuddin Talukdar has been treating Khaleda Zia. She is suffering from post-COVID complications and has been kept in CCU, according to the panel, reports the news portal."If a coronavirus patient has no symptoms after two weeks of infections, it is assumed they won't infect others. That's why the BNP chairperson is receiving treatment in a non-COVID' unit,” Prof AZM Zahid Hossain told bdnews24, citing “international health protocols”.
