Italy is suspending all flights from Bangladesh for one week due to a ‘significant number’ of passengers who tested positive to the coronavirus on a flight to Rome on Monday.

During the suspension, the country will work on new precautionary measures for all arrivals from outside the European Union and the Schengen area, reports Reuters citing a statement.

Last week the Lazio region around Rome urged all the local Bangladeshi community to test for the coronavirus after clusters of recent cases.
