35 Bangladeshi passport holders entered the country on Saturday morning from India

Five Bangladeshis were taken to isolation units after they returned from India.

They entered Bangladesh through the Petrapole-Benapole border checkpoint on Saturday morning.

Benapole Immigration Health Centre’s Dr Jahidul Islam said 35 Bangladeshi passport holders entered the country from 9am to 10.30am on Saturday.

“Of them, five were found to have high body temperatures. Special arrangements were made to take those five to the isolation unit at the Sharsha Upazila Health Complex,” he added.

Confirming the matter, Benapole Immigration Check Post Officer-in-Charge (OC) Ahsan Habib said the health complex doctors are doing whatever is necessary for the five people.

Sharsha Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer Yusuf Ali said necessary measures will be taken following the directives given by higher officials.

In Bangladesh, 70 people have tested positive for coronavirus and there have been eight recorded deaths from coronavirus infection so far. 

The fast spreading Covid-19 has claimed more than 59,000 lives and infected over 1,121,000 globally, according to Worldometer.
