312 Wuhan returnees can go home Saturday: Zahid


DHAKA, Feb 13, 2020 (BSS) – Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque said today that 312 Bangladeshis who returned from Wuhan, China, can go home on Saturday next after successful completion of 14-day quarantine in Ashkona Hajj Camp.

“We will release those 312 quarantined returnees by Saturday next as all sorts of tests will be done by that time,” he told a programme at International Convention City Bashundhara here.

The Bangladeshi nationals arrived at Dhaka Airport on February 1 from Wuhan, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, and were kept in quarantine at Ashkona Hajj camp for scrutiny since then.
