Mashrafe Mortaza tests positive for coronavirus again

Mashrafe Mortaza tests positive for coronavirus again

Dhaka, Jul 4 (UNI) Former Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza has tested Covid-19 positive for the second time inside 15 days.

BCB chief physician Debashish Chowdhury confirmed the news on Saturday, according to Cricbuzz.

“There is no reason to panic. He will give another test on July 8 and he might be cleared at that point of time. In most cases the patient is cleared by 14 days but that is not mandatory. Someone might take more time,” he said.

On June 20, Mortaza, in a Facebook post, had said that he had tested Covid-19 positive.

According to a BCB official, Mortaza was tested a few days back and the results came out positive again.

Meanwhile, he is recovering at his home in Dhaka.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic reached Bangladesh, the former skipper had been working to fight the health crisis in his constituency.

Mortaza had become a Member of Parliament from Narail constituency in 2018.
