Bangladesh reports first death of COVID-19 variant patient
DHAKA. Bangladesh on Monday announced the death of a patient who was infected with the COVID-19 variant first detected in India, the first fatality in the country involving the new variant.
According to data published by the government’s Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research, six Bangladeshis who returned from India have been found to be infected with the new variant, and one of them who was also suffering from cancer and other ailments died.
Bangladesh detected the first two cases of the highly infectious coronavirus variant earlier this month, after imposing a ban on the entry of travellers from India via land ports starting from April 26.
The air travel between the two countries has also been suspended from April 14 following a steep rise in COVID-19 infections in India.
Bangladesh reported 698 new confirmed cases and 32 new deaths from the coronavirus epidemic on Monday, bringing its total tally to 780,859 with 12,181 deaths.
