Gopalganj's Kashiani Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Rathindra Nath Roy has been diagnosed with coronavirus.
Kashiani Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer Dr Md Kaiyum Talukder confirmed the information on Wednesday morning.
Earlier on August 5, Rathindra Nath joined in Kashiani. He has been tested positive for coronavirus five days after the start of work.
Kaiyum Talukder said Rathindra Nath visited the flood-hit area soon after joining as a UNO. Besides, he was going to different areas to do awareness work to prevent coronavirus infection.
As he has been suffering from coronavirus-like symptoms, sample of the UNO was collected on August 9 and sent to a PCR lab for coronavirus test.
Rathindra Nath is now in isolation at his residence, said Dr Kaiyum.
