The health condition of National Professor Anisuzzaman, now undergoing treatment at Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Dhaka, has improved.
"Test results are still all quite satisfactory. Despite his having issues with heart, kidney and other ailments, the biggest challenge for doctors is to deal with the infection. Today, for the third consecutive day, it has come down," his son Ananda Zaman told The Business Standard today.
"Doctors said they will consider my father as stable if they can manage the infection," Ananda added.
Professor Anisuzzaman was shifted to the CMH from another city hospital on Saturday after his health condition deteriorated.
Prof Dr Anisuzzaman was admitted to the Universal Cardiac Hospital in the city on April 27 with various health complications. As his condition worsened, he was taken to the intensive care unit of the hospital on May 1.
Anisuzzaman is an eminent educator, writer and professor emeritus of Bangla Department at Dhaka University. He was made a National Professor in 2018.
He participated in the 1952 language movement, the 1969 mass upsurge and the 1971 liberation war. After independence, he became a member of the Kudrat-E-Khuda National Education Commission.
