Amid the growing concern over the new ‘Omicron’ variant of coronavirus, the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) on Monday suggested the implementation of 15 instructions to prevent the spread of the new variant.
The DGHS issued a notice signed by Prof Nazmul Islam, Director of Disease Control, on Sunday night, putting forward the instructions.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has also asked all countries to stay alert about the new variant.
The UK and other countries have imposed a travel ban on South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe and other countries as the new variant is more contagious than the Delta variant.
The DGHS urged all concerned to take measures to enforce those instructions.
