A housewife from Gaishpur village, under Satkhira sadar upazila's Bhomra union, was forced to leave the village by her neighbours after she began exhibiting cold symptoms.
After she was forced to leave her village on Tuesday afternoon, she went to Satkhira Medical College Hospital with her seven-year-old daughter. She was admitted to the hospital's isolation ward.
"The woman has been suffering from a cold-related illness for the last two days. Her neighbours forced her to leave her village, suspecting that she might have the novel coronavirus," doctor of Satkhira Medical College Hospital Manas Kumar told The Business Standard.
"She came to the hospital for treatment, at noon, and was admitted to the Medical Isolation Ward," he added.
"By her symptoms, it does not look like she has Covid-19. She may have caught a cold and cough due to the weather," Manas Kumar added.
Regardless, the patient is being treated in the isolation ward.
"A decision will be made tomorrow (Wednesday) after consulting the authorities about sending her samples to the Institute of Epidemiology Disease Control and Research for a coronavirus test," the doctor added.
The doctor also said that the woman's husband works in Cox's Bazar.
Bhomra union Chairman Israel Ghazi and local UP member Abdus Sattar could not be reached for comment.
