Bangladesh Sees Rise in Cases, Fatalities, Recoveries

  • Coronavirus has been newly detected in 75 people in Bangladesh in the last 24 hours.
  • In the last 24 hours, 65 people have been taken in isolation in Bangladesh, and 60 people have been released from isolation.
  • In Mymensingh Division, on Sunday, another 25 tested positive for coronavirus.

In Bangladesh, the number of recoveries from COVID-19 has risen from 177 on Saturday to 1,063. The Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) says that a new guideline given by the Clinical Management Committee of Bangladesh has been followed as to why so many patients have recovered in such a short period of time.

Mymensingh Division is one of the eight administrative divisions of Bangladesh. It was created in 2015 from districts previously comprising the northern part of Dhaka Division.

Meanwhile, coronavirus has been newly detected in 75 people in Bangladesh in the last 24 hours. This is the highest number of coronavirus patients identified so far. The total number of cases has increased to 9,455 people. At this time 2 people died due to coronavirus. As a result, the number of deaths in COVID-19 in Bangladesh is 177.

At present, samples of coronavirus-infected people are being tested in 31 laboratories in the country, according to the regular health bulletin on May 1. Meanwhile, one of the two new victims is between 11-20 years of age. Another is over sixty years old. One of them is a resident of Rangpur, and the other is from Narayanganj.

A Bangladesh Clinical Management Committee member said that according to the previous guidelines if a person was found to be coronavirus positive, a second test would be done within 14-21 days. If the result was negative, another test would be done in the next 24 hours, or two or three days. Even if the result was negative, and the patient was declared healthy and discharged from the hospital, they were told to stay at home quarantine for another 14 days.

However, under the new rules, if the patient recovers clinically— that is, if he no longer surfers from fever, cough, or shortness of breath for three consecutive days— he will be sent home for 14 days in isolation without being hospitalized. The next two tests will be done from home, which used to be done from the hospital. It is learned that the decision was taken as the patients’ pressure was increasing in the hospital.

In the last 24 hours, 65 people have been taken in isolation in Bangladesh, and 60 people have been released from isolation. Besides this, 984 people have been taken to quarantine in the last 24 hours.  According to yesterday’s bulletin, there are thousands of pieces of protective equipment in stock in Bangladesh at present.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), also known as 2019-nCoV acute respiratory disease (2019-nCoV ARD), and novel coronavirus pneumonia (NCP) is a viral respiratory disease caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). It was first detected during the 2019–20 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak.

In the last 24 hours, 60,221 calls have been received on four hotlines. There has been various health advice, including COVID-19 issues. In addition, 16,008 people have been served through mobile phones and websites. In the last 24 hours, 569 people have been screened at airports, land ports, and seaports.
