BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has gone into quarantine as one of his relatives tested positive for coronavirus.
In an online program on Thursday (November 19), Fakhrul said, “I'm sorry for not being able to attend your programme as corona has been detected in my house. So, I'm forced to remain in isolation for 14 days.”
He said, "Coronavirus has spread everywhere. Many of our senior leaders, including Mirza Abbas, Iqbal Hasan Mahmud Tuku and our Mohila Dal president Afroza Abbas have been infected with the virus. We've lost many of our leaders, including Swechchasebak Dal president Shafiul Bari Babu, our organising secretary Abdul Awal Khan and Dhaka north city unit general secretary Ahsanullah Hasan, to coronavirus."
Meanwhile, he asked all to remain alert about the deadly virus.
