The condition of Zafrullah, who tested positive for coronavirus, deteriorated slightly on Thursday last after he developed breathing complications.
He has been receiving treatment at Gonoshasthaya Nagar Hospital in the city's Dhanmondi area under the supervision of Brig Dr Mamun Mustafiz and Prof Dr Najib.
Zafrullah, also a freedom fighter, underwent coronavirus testing with the kit developed by Gonoshasthaya which found him to be Covid-19 positive on May 25.
Four days later, a RT-PCR test at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) also found him positive for coronavirus.
He was given plasma therapy thrice to help strengthen his immune system in a bid to beat the virus.
