The district administration has locked down the Prime Hospital for concealing the treatment it provided to the expatriate and for greater interest of the local people. The lockdown came into effect after 12:01am on Tuesday, said Noakhali district civil surgeon Dr Md Mominur Rahman.
Morshed Alam, an Italy expatriate Bangladeshi, of Sonapur union under Sonaimuri upazila in Noakhali district, was admitted to the local Prime Hospital in the town with coronavirus infection on April 5.
The 45-year-old was admitted to the Room No. 504 of the hospital. As his condition deteriorated there, he was shifted to Noakhali General Hospital on April 8. He died when he was taken to Dhaka in the morning of April 9. Later, the blood samples from his body were collected and sent to the IEDCR in Dhaka. The blood samples of the expatriate were found positive in the tests. The test report was sent to the Noakhali district administration on Saturday.
Dr Mominur Rahman said the Prime Hospital authorities collected samples of blood from the patient’s but did not inform the civil surgeon office. So, the Prime Hospital has been put on total lockdown for 14 days for the “greater interest of people and patients admitted there.”
At the same time, a directive was given to all the doctors, nurses, officials and employees to go into home-quarantine for 14 days vacating the hospital and disinfect it.
