164 Bangladeshis are also expected to arrive in Dhaka from the United Arab Emirates early Tuesday

A total of 84 Bangladeshi and Korean nationals have returned to Bangladesh from South Korea, where they have been stuck since international flights were suspended in a bid to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.

An Asiana Airlines special flight, carrying them, landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at 6:15pm on Sunday, a senior security official of the airport confirmed Dhaka Tribune.

Of the returnees, 68 were Bangladeshi nationals and 16 Korean nationals.

“After screening all the passengers, one Bangladeshi national was sent for institutional quarantine at the Ashkona Hajj Camp as he had a fever,” said Dr Shaikot Chowdhury, health officer at the airport.

Meanwhile, another special flight of Dubai Aviation Corporation, carrying a total of 164 Bangladeshis, is expected to arrive in Dhaka from the United Arab Emirates around 3am on Tuesday, said the security official.
