A Chinese female worker, who returned from China recently, has been admitted to the Rangpur Medical College Hospital on Sunday with early fever.
She returned from the coronavirus-stuck country China to her workplace in Nilphamari's Uttara Export Processing Zone area on February 4.
The Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) has been informed about the patient's health condition, Dr Abdul Mokadam, assistant director (Administration) of Rangpur Medical College said.
"We have isolated her from the general patients," he said.
A medical team from Dhaka will arrive soon to collect samples of the patient, he further added.
"The patient is undergoing treatment at the hospital right now. It can't be confirmed without medical test whether she is infected with coronavirus or not," Humayun Kabir, in-charge of coronavirus isolation unit of the hospital said.
Earlier, three Bangladeshi students were admitted in the coronavirus unit of the hospital and had been declared free of coronavirus after further test by IEDCR.
The novel coronavirus has infected more than 69,000 people globally, mostly in mainland China. The death toll is 1,669, including four people outside mainland China as of Saturday.
