Road Transport Minister Obaidul Quader was moved to a cabin from the intensive care unit of Singapore’s Mount Elizabeth Hospital on Tuesday afternoon after his conditions improved.

‘He was shifted at 4pm local time (2pm BdST),’ said Prof Dr Abu Nasar Rizvi of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), reports the UNB.

‘He is doing well. His pressure and diabetes are in control,’ he informed Quader’s family members and others at Mount Elizabeth Hospital, quoting doctors.

The minister underwent a bypass surgery on March 20. 

He was initially admitted to BSMMU on March 3 following breathing complications. Tests revealed three blockages in his coronary artery. He was flown to Singapore the next day for treatment.
