Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday said she wants quick steps to fight the fresh surge of Covid-19 pandemic in Bangladesh.
“A fresh surge of Coronavirus is visible. Different variants of this virus have come here. So, we’ll have to take prompt steps as we did in the past,” she said while addressing a virtual discussion.
Bangladesh Awami League arranged the discussion at its Bangabandhu Avenue central office, marking the Independence Day.
Sheikh Hasina, also the president of Awami League, presided over the discussion, joining it virtually from her official residence Ganobhaban.
The Prime Minister said health protection guidelines and safe physical distance will have to be maintained in every programme like seminar, training, workshop and other programmes. “All should use face masks. All must ensure it (masking up),” she said.
