Former Bangladesh cricket captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza was diagnosed with coronavirus on Saturday (Jun 20). He is undergoing treatment in Dhaka, local media reported citing family sources.

“He has been suffering from fever for two days. Covid-19 test was conducted on Friday and we got the result today. He has been found positive. He's now staying in isolation at home in Dhaka. Please pray for him," Masrhafe’s younger brother Morsalin Bin Mortaza told media.

Earlier on May 18, Mashrafe sold his favourite bracelet at Tk 42 lakh in an online auction for the treatment of Covid-19 patients.

The entire money earned from the sale of the bracelet will go to Mashrafe’s ‘Narail Express Foundation’. From there, the money will be spent for people affected by coronavirus pandemic.

On May 12, Mashrafe, an MP from Narail-2 constituency, sought an intensive care unit (ICU) for Narail Sadar Hospital from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to face the coronavirus crisis. He was working in his constituency during the pandemic.
