 The Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research made the call in an effort to avoid the spread of Covid-19 infections in Bangladesh as it spread in more than 50 countries, reports bdnews24.com.  At a media briefing in Dhaka yesterday IEDCR Director Meerjady Sabrina Flora said, “No case of coronavirus infection has been identified in Bangladesh as of now. If the virus ever enters Bangladesh, it will be through the people travelling in those countries.”  Flora said, “We suggest that those who return home from abroad should use masks for going home from the airport. If possible, they should use private transports. They should keep the windows open.”  Meanwhile, 23 Bangladeshis, who are housed at a quarantine facility in India after they were evacuated from Wuhan in China, are not infected with COVID-19.
Authorities confirmed the matter after testing their samples on Saturday, reports banglanews24.com.
