Dhaka/IBNS: Twenty-three doctors have tested positive for COVID-19 in Bangladesh's Sir Salimullah Medical College or Mitford Hospital, media reports said on Monday.

The authorities believe the doctors, nurses and an Ansar member were infected from a patient who hid information about his own coronavirus test result and the symptoms, reported bdnews24.

The hospital is located in Dhaka city.

The hospital conducted tests on 69 health workers on Saturday but the results came back negative after 22 tested positive last Thursday and Friday, the hospital’s Director Brig Gen Kazi Md Rashid Un Nabi was quoted as saying by bdnews24.

But on Sunday, 13 other doctors and seven nurses tested positive, taking the total to 42, he said.

The infected patients have been kept in isolation.
