Chief Justice Hasan Foez Siddique and his wife Dalia Firoz have been hospitalised after testing positive for Covid-19.
The Chief Justice was admitted to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) on Wednesday night, its Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Md Sharfuddin Ahmed said on Thursday, reports UNB.
"The top judge's wife was admitted to the same hospital on Tuesday," he said, adding that "both are doing well". "A medical board has been constituted that will take a call on their treatment Thursday noon."
However, when contacted, the special officer of the Supreme Court, Mohammad Saifur Rahman, refused to divulge any details.  The Registrar General, on the other hand, couldn't be contacted.
On Tuesday, the Chief Justice instructed that the proceedings of both the Appellate Division and the High Court be conducted virtually from Wednesday due to a spike in Covid cases across the country.
Thirteen judges of the High Court division and a number of other judges and staff were found infected with Covid-19, said the Chief Justice during a judicial proceeding at the Appellate Division the same day.
