Covid-infected Chinese in Bangladesh projects could be challenge for Hasina govt

Chinese nationals working in various projects in Bangladesh may emerge as a big challenge for the Sheikh Hasina government in its fight to stop covid spread with a number of them getting infected with the virus.

After close to 100 Chinese nationals found Covid positive in Khulna power plant, 35 Chinese nationals working at Pyra thermal power station have tested positive for Covid-19, according to the local civil surgeon’s office.

The power station is located in Bangladesh’s Patuakhali’s Kalapara Upazila.

400-450 Chinese people are working at Payra Thermal Power Station. Earlier 15 Chinese workers were infected with the virus in this power plant.

Earlier it was found that 85 Chinese nationals, working at a dual fuel combined cycle power plant being built inside the Khulna Power Plant in Bangladesh, have been tested Covid-19 positive.

What had created panic in the area is the fact that the Covid-19 Chinese nationals are not following health protocols and are mixing with locals putting their lives at risk, according to local media reports. The Chinese nationals are allegedly not adhering to home quarantine and attending work at the plant putting lives of locals at risk, the media reports claimed.

As many as 185 Chinese nationals work in the Khulna power plant and over 500 workers regularly attend work and now there is a risk of Covid spread.

The local authorities are probing the incident.

China has sent 500,000 doses of the vaccine as a gift to Bangladesh.
