Dhaka/IBNS: Bangladesh Minister Obaidul Quader on Tuesday said 35 Chinese workers, who are working under the Padma Multipurpose Bridge Project, are under observation.

The workers who returned to Bangladesh from coronavirus-stricken China since January 18 will not be allowed to join work before a 14-day observation period is over, Quader said at a press briefing at his secretariat office as reported by The Daily Star.

Asked whether construction work of Padma bridge will be affected due to coronavirus, the minister was quoted as saying by the newspaper that around 1,000 workers have been working under the project and 150 of them usually go on “shifting leave” at a time. 

Their leave does not have any impact on the construction work, Quader said. 

The outbreak of the coronavirus has leftover 100 people dead in China.
