Former Health Minister and Awami League leader Mohammad Nasim died at Bangladesh Specialised Hospital on Saturday.

He was 72

His son Tanvir Shakil Joy said his father breathed his last around 11:10 am.

Earlier on Friday night, an emergency meeting of a 12-member medical board was held through a videoconference after deterioration of his health condition.

Nasim’s son was present at the meeting.

The medical board was formed on Monday.

The former minister underwent a successful surgery after his condition deteriorated on June 5 following a stroke while undergoing treatment at the hospital.

A day before that, his health condition improved and he was scheduled to be shifted to a cabin from ICU.

On June 2, Nasim tested positive for coronavirus.

Nasim had been acting as the convenor for the 14-party ruling alliance built around the heft of Awami League.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina expressed profound shock at his death.

Born on April 2, 1948, Mohammed Nasim served as the former Minister of Health and Family Welfare and Minister of Home Affairs of the government of Bangladesh respectively during 2014–2019 and 1999–2001.
