Those who died from coronavirus came to IEDCR at the last stage: Dr Meerjady

Those who died from coronavirus came to the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) at the last stage, said the organisations' director Dr Meerjady Sabrina Flora.

"We had nothing to do in those cases," Dr Meerjady said after she joined the video conference of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and government officials of 64 districts.

Fifteen out of 49 coronavirus-infected people returned from abroad, she added.

It is important that the coronavirus patients who have recovered are accepted in the society and the IEDCR is now emphasising on this issue, she added.

The prime minister attended the conference from her official residence Gono Bhaban at 10:00am, which was held to ensure better coordination of the ongoing activities to prevent the spread of the virus.
