The health condition of Ghoraghat UNO Wahida Khanam, who was seriously injured in an attack by miscreants which left her right side paralyzed, has improved further, said, doctors.
Dr Mohammad Zahed Hossain, the chief of the Neurotrauma Department of the National Institute of Neurosciences & Hospital, said this during a briefing on Saturday.
''She's now able to move her right hand from fingers to elbow but unable to move her right leg yet. The stitches done during her head surgery have been removed,'' said Zahed Hossain.
Her physical condition is improving as she is taking physiotherapy three to four times a day, Dr Hossain added.
''She's now out of danger and has no health complications. We'll keep her in observation for a few more days as her physiotherapy is underway,'' he said.
Replying to a question, Dr Zahed said they have not decided yet to shift her to a bed or cabin from the High Dependency Unit. ''Now she's not shifted her to any cabin as visitors may crowd there, triggering the infection risk.'' he said.
