Coronavirus disease 2019, namely COVID-19, is a highly contagious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). This infectious disease was first recognized in December 2019 at Wuhan in China, which has resulted in an ongoing global pandemic in March 2020. The COVID-19 in Bangladesh, which is part of the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19, was confirmed in March 2020. The first three known cases were identified on 8 March 2020 by the country's epidemiology institute, Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR). There have been a total of 156,391 confirmed cases in the country, with 68,048 recoveries and 1,968 deaths as of July 3, 2020.
It is imperative to forecast the future trend of this pandemic by accessing the available data in order to understand the current situation, evaluate the severity of the pandemic, and help the authorities for making decisions and strategies to control the new infections in the near future.
