Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina urged the countrymen to obey the ongoing lockdown and health guidelines properly to stop further spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19), reassuring all of bringing under vaccination and other required assistances.
“We’ve announced a lockdown … I call upon all to abide by the guidelines of the lockdown properly to protect yourselves and others. Don’t let the coronavirus spread further,” she said in her valedictory speech as the Leader of the House on Saturday.
Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury chaired the House.
The prime minister said that the only way to check the spread of the Covid-19 is to wear masks, clean hands and maintain distance in such a way that none can be infected afresh with the lethal virus.
The Leader of the House reiterated her pledge to bring 80 percent of the people under vaccination free of cost as 4.50 million jabs of the US’s Moderna, China’s Sinopharm vaccines have already reached in Dhaka, while the processes of bringing more inoculates are going on as talks with the countries like China, Russia, the USA and Japan are underway.
