Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday urged the unvaccinated people of the country to take the Covid-19 jab immediately to protect their lives from the new variant of the pandemic.
“I urge those who haven’t yet get vaccinated to receive vaccines soon. We started vaccinating school students as well. At least life might be saved if one gets vaccinated,” she said while inaugurating the newly constructed National Science and Technology Complex in the city’s Agargaon area.
The Prime Minister opened the complex, joining a function virtually from her official residence Ganobhaban. Others concerned got connected with the virtual event from the complex constructed by the National Museum of Science and Technology (NMST).
Hasina said a new variant of Covid-19 is now spreading fast. Families are getting infected by the Omicron variant.
