A man has tested positive for the new coronavirus in Tala upazila of Satkhira, making him the first patient to contract Covid-19 in the district.

“The patient’s sample was sent to Khulna Medical College on Tuesday and it came back as positive on Thursday,” confirmed Satkhira Civil Surgeon Dr Hussain Shafayet.

The infected is a health worker of an NGO and a resident of Nagarghata union.

Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer Dr Rajib Sardar said: “The patient is under observation to determine whether he will stay home or at a hospital. In the meantime, his home and homes of anyone who’s come in contact with him will be locked down.”
