3 coronavirus patients detected in Bangladesh: IEDCR

Three coronavirus infected patients have been detected in Bangladesh, said Prof Meerjady Sabrina Flora, director of the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) on Sunday.

She came up with the information at a press briefing at IEDCR.

The infected patients include two men and one woman, and all of them have been kept in quarantine, said Flora.

Two of them recently returned home from Italy, she said.

Coronavirus, which was first reported in China’s Wuhan, has infected more than 100,000 people and killed over 3,400.

The virus has emerged in more than 90 countries but more than half of those who contracted the virus have now recovered.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday urged the people of the country not to be worried regarding coronavirus as Bangladesh has enough capability to face this disease.

"Inshallah, we’ve enough capability (to tackle coronavirus) and we’ll do that. There’s nothing to be worried," she said while inaugurating the function of the International Women’s Day at Osmani Memorial Auditorium.

She said the government is monitoring the situation round the clock and will take immediate appropriate steps if any problem arises in any place.

"All have to remain neat and clean and follow the instructions of the Health Ministry," she said.

Sheikh Hasina said Health Ministry is issuing their instructions daily regarding the coronavirus.
