Health Desk: 18 March 2018: The Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) authorities have formed a 13- member medical board to provide better treatment to the four Bangladeshi survivors of the US-Bangla airlines’ plane that crashed in Nepal’s Kathmandu.

Samanta Lal Sen, national coordinator of burn units across the country, is leading the medical team, Prof Dr Abul Kalam Azad, director general of Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), said on Sunday.

Three psychiatrists, including Dr Abdullah Al-Mamun, head of Psychiatry Department of the DMCH, out of the 13-member team, observed the physical conditions of the four survivors -- Shahreen Ahmed, Mehedi Hasan and his wife Saiyada Kamrunnahar Shwarna and Almunnahar Annie -- at the hospital cabins in the morning, the DGHS DG said in a press briefing held at the hospital’s main building.

It’s important to mention that on March 12, the crash in Nepal’s Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) left 51 dead. It slammed on an empty field and burst into flames. At least 28 Bangladeshis were among the dead.
