They tested negative in two subsequent tests for Corona virus since they were admitted to the hospital in Dhaka on Sunday. 

They are likely to be discharged soon if the third test also reports them negative for infection after 72 hours.  The third patient is still reported positive.  

This was announced on Wednesday by the Director of Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) Meerjady Sabrina Flora, reports UNB.

Sabrina Flora said that Corona virus is fully under control in Bangladesh and there is no need to close schools and colleges. However, people have been asked to avoid public gatherings as a precautionary measure.

She said no new cases of Corona virus infection have been detected over the past 24 hours. The Director said that 142 persons were tested for Corona virus on Tuesday and currently 8 persons have been kept in isolation for testing. 

She called upon people to go for self-quarantine for two weeks in case of any small symptoms of Corona virus. She also emphasized the importance of creating awareness for cleanliness and prevention.
