Stating that many programs have been canceled due to coronavirus, the Prime Minister said, like other countries of the world, the corona virus has come to Bangladesh. Everyone has to be safe. Coronavirus infection is increasing day by day.
She said the whole world is scared for the virus. I think such a situation has never been made in the world before. Economic activities in the world are stagnant. Even religious institutions like Mecca, Medina, mosques, temples, pagodas are closed. Bangladesh is also a country in the world. So we have begun to take appropriate measures from the beginning.
Describing various steps taken by the government to prevent Corona, the Prime Minister said that all the instructions should be followed.
Meeting people is either not there, protecting oneself, it is absolutely necessary. The prevalence of coronavirus is high in these districts of Dhaka, Narayanganj, Gazipur. At the same time, I can see that some districts were not affected. I have taken measures to prevent the outbreak in these districts.
Thanking everyone involved in preventing coronavirus, the Prime Minister said all kinds of safety equipment related to coronavirus have been collected. Not everyone should use it. The ones that will be there for the whole patient to see. Can be used only for those working in the hospital.
“April will be a little difficult for us,” she added. Be careful this month. Nevertheless, the disease infected in Europe and America is less than in our country. In many countries, including the United Kingdom and the United States, Bengalis die less than in the whole country.
