A total of 156 members of Fire Service and Civil Defense (FSCD) have returned to their work so far after recovering from novel coronavirus.

Around 202 members of the FSCD have tested positive for Covid-19 since the virus was first detected in the country on March 8. Of them, forty six infected have been kept in institutional quarantine at different hospitals and centres, including Purbachal Multipurpose Fire Service Center and Yusufganj School in Rupganj, Narayanganj.

However, all the infected members are well. Of these, 156 have already been declared healthy as they tested negative twice and remaining others are being closely monitored.

In any emergency, they will also be kept in isolation or hospitalised if their health condition does not improve or deteriorate.
