Chattogram-6 (Raozan) lawmaker ABM Fazle Karim Chowdhury's elder son has tested Covid-19 positive.
Fazle Karim is also the chairperson of the parliamentary standing committee on the railway ministry.
The lawmaker's son, Faraz Karim, confirmed his own infection on Saturday in a Facebook post.
Faraz, a young politician, was involved in social welfare activities including managing sehri for 2,000 doctors, nurses and healthcare workers every day, distributing masks and arranging the burial of Covid-19 victims since the virus broke out.
"I am staying in complete isolation now," said Faraz while asking people to keep him in their prayers.
