Dhaka/IBNS:  A group of 26 people, which included both Bangladeshi and Chinese nationals, have arrived in Dhaka from China's Xianju province, media reports said on Sunday.

A special flight carrying the returnees landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at around 8:00 am on Sunday, a top official at the airport told Dhaka Tribune.

The nationals returned to Bangladesh at a time when the country is witnessing an outbreak of COVID-19 virus which is believed to have originated from China.

The people, who arrived in Dhaka, include 10 Bangladeshis, 9 Chinese nationals and 7 crew members.

“All of these Chinese nationals are involved with the Padma Bridge project,” the official told the newspaper.

Speaking to Dhaka Tribune, Airport Health Officer Dr Shahriar Sajjad said all returnees underwent thermal scanning at the airport.

“After a proper checking, four Bangladeshis were sent to institutional quarantine at Ashkona Hajj Camp from the airport,” he added.
