Qatar Airways had already suspended flights to and from Italy. This has been done to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the government announced.

 

 

The decisions were taken after Bangladesh health authorities on Monday reported another COVID-19 death, taking the country’s death toll to three, while te number of infections rose to 33. The novel Coronavirus outbreak has caused alarm as it has crossed global fatalities in the 2002-03 SARS epidemic.
