No traveller can leave airport without coronavirus screening

Not only those coming from China, but all passengers will be screened at the airports from now on, Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) has stated.

No passenger will be allowed to enter Bangladesh without clearance from doctors at the airports, IEDCR Director Prof Meerjady Sabrina Flora said at a press conference in the capital today.

“Earlier, only travellers from China were being screened but from now on, all inbound passengers will have to go through the thermal health screenings at all the international entry points,” she said.

On an average, 12,000 passengers land at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka daily.
