The Awami League leader has asked the people to pray for the recovery of Obaidul Quader.
The hospital authorities and AL have urged visitors to refrain from crowding the hospital.
Initially, Obaidul Qauder was admitted to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) hospital on 2 March, 2019, following breathing complications.
After examining his angiogram there, doctors found three blocks in his coronary artery.
On 4 March, the minister was flown to Singapore on an air ambulance for advanced treatment.
The minister underwent bypass surgery at Mount Elizabeth Hospital on 20 March. Later, he returned home on 15 May after receiving medical treatment in Singapore for over two months.
Later on 31 January 2020, Obaidul Quader was again admitted to BSMMU due to shortness of breath.
On that day, a meeting of the party's secretaries was held at the Awami League president's political office in Dhanmondi.
Obaidul Quader arrived there around 10am to attend the meeting. At that time he felt shortness of breath and left the office after 10 minutes. From there he went directly to BSMMU.
