Faridpur lawmaker and former minister Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain has been tested positive for Covid-19.

The former local government minister told Bangla Tribune on Friday that he has isolated himself at his residence in Dhaka.

“I have given my samples for test, which came back as positive,” said the Faridpur 3 MP, whose son is married to the daughter of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

However, none of his family members have been tested positive, said his son-in-law Md Habib-e Millat, the MP from Sirajganj 2.

“Test results of sample from all the members of the family came back on Thursday, when only the former minister’s sample came back as positive,” he said.

Khandaker Mosharraf has no Covid-19 symptoms, Millat said before adding: “He is completely fine.”
