Covid testing at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka will begin within three to four days, said chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) Air-Vice Marshal M Mofidur Rahman on Saturday.

He said this during his visit to the site designated for RT-PCR booths to be set up at the car parking lot of the airport for migrant workers.

The CAAB chairman said the Covid testing will begin once the diagnostic centre, selected by the authorities, sets up its RT-PCR mobile booths.

On September 6, Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam said PCR booths will be set up at three international airports of Bangladesh to facilitate passengers to take Covid-19 tests four to six hours before boarding their flights.

The directive came from a cabinet meeting held with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.

He said the PCR booths will be set up at Dhaka, Chattogram and Sylhet international airports.
