A total of 312 Bangladeshi nationals who returned from China’s Wuhan, the epicentre of coronavirus, will return home after a 14-day of quarantine on Saturday, said Health Minister Zahid Malik on Thursday at a programme at International Convention City Bashundhara in the capital.

The minister said: “They all are fine. We’ll release them after all kinds of tests on February 15.”

The Bangladeshi nationals arrived at Shahjalal International Airport on February 1 and were kept in quarantine at Ashkona Hajj camp for observation since then.

Mentioning that confusions are being spread over coronavirus at different places of the country, the minister said misinformation should not be spread in this regard before confirmation by medical tests.

Meanwhile, China has reported 254 new daily deaths and a spike in new daily virus cases of 15,152, after new methodology was applied in the hardest-hit province of Hubei as to how cases are categorized, reports AP.

The total deaths from the more than 2-month-old outbreak as reported on Thursday stood at 1,367, with the total number of confirmed cases mounting to 59,804.
