The number of patients infected with fatal coronavirus in China is increasing day by day. Concerns and anxieties are plaguing Bangladeshis trapped in Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the virus. Under the circumstances, many Bangladeshis are urging to return home.

Ishrat Jahan Liza, a teacher at Barisal University, is a PhD at China University of Geo Sciences. While talking to her on Tuesday afternoon, she said that she was trapped in the house for seven days and could not take out. The road of Wuhan is completely deserted, she added.

Liza said anyone could be attacked at any time and we are spending time with great fear, panic and apprehension. 

The Chinese government is providing free medical treatment to anyone infected, she said, adding that the government has also launched a hotline to take help over the issue.

Lisa said she was dealing with a horrific situation with her husband and children there."My young child is being held in a house and he is having mental problems. I have heard that the Bangladeshi government is trying to get us back but I do not know when. But we want to return home."

Liza said there were more than three hundred Bangladeshis and no Bangladeshis returned to home after January 23.
