406 return from Saudi; two taken to hospital with high temperature

Some 406 Bangladeshi nationals, who had been stranded in Saudi Arabia, returned home on Thursday evening.

Two of them were directly sent to Kuwait-Bangladesh Friendship Government Hospital from the airport after health workers found them with high body temperature.

Saudi suspended air communication with some countries, including Bangladesh, to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, forcing Bangladeshi migrants to be stranded there.

According to the health desk at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, a flight of Saudi Arabian Airlines carrying them landed at the airport around 6:40pm.

Health workers tested all the passengers and found two of them with high body temperature.

Later, they were sent to the hospital.
