On reaching the Darshana check-post at the border, health screening and Covid-19 sample collection of the returnees were conducted by a medical team from the Damurhuda Upazila Health Complex, said Monir Parveen.

Of the 72 returnees, a woman tested positive for Covid-19 after tests and was taken to the isolation ward of Chuadanga Sadar Hospital, said the ADC.

The rest were sent to Chuadanga Technical Training Centre for a 14-day mandatory quarantine, added ADC Monira Parveen.

The 72 Bangladeshi returnees include 46 men and 26 women, said sub-inspector Abdul Alim, in-charge of Darshana-Joynagar Check-post Immigration.
