CHT Affairs Minister admitted to CMH in Dhaka

Coronavirus-infected Chittagong Hill Tracts Affairs Minister Bir Bahadur Ushwe Sing was admitted to Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Dhaka on Sunday afternoon.

“A helicopter of Bangladesh Army carrying the minister and his son Robin Bahadur landed at Tejgaon helipad at 12:40pm” Rashedul Alam Khan, assistant director, Inter Services Public Relations Directorate (ISPR) told UNB.

The helicopter left Bandarban at 11:25am, said Dr Aung Sui Marma, Bandarban Civil Surgeon.

The bodyguard and personal secretary of the Minister were sent to isolation, Bandarban Civil Surgeon said.

The minister might have contracted the virus as he had attended several programmes during Eid-ul-Fitr and came to contact with mass people while distributing reliefs and other things, he added.

Earlier on Monday, former Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim was tested positive for coronavirus shortly after he was admitted to a private hospital in the capital.

Bangladesh has so far confirmed 63,026 coronavirus cases and 846 deaths.
