A 25-year-old patient, who had been in isolation with coronavirus symptoms, has fled a hospital in Pabna.
The authorities of Pabna sadar hospital filed a general diary in this regard.
Officer-in-Charge of Pabna sadar police station Md Nasim Uddin said the youth, Mostaq Al Mamun, came to his in-law's house at Pabna's Bera upazila from Halishpur upazila of Dinajpur on April 5 with fever, cough and headache.
The patient later got admitted to Pabna sadar hospital the following day with fever, cold and breathing difficulties, he added.
