No symptom of coronavirus was found in a Bangladeshi student who returned here from China and is undergoing treatment at Rangpur Medical College Hospital, said a physician on Sunday.
“Primarily, we found no symptom of coronavirus in Tajbid Hossain. We also sent the samples of his blood, perspiration and saliva to the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) in the capital for test,” said Dr Debendranath Sarkar, a physician of the Medicine department of the hospital.
Besides, a 12-member medical board, headed by him, was formed to provide treatment to Tajbid, he said.
