Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday will hold a videoconference with the deputy commissioners (DCs) and officials concerned of 16 districts under Khulna and Barisal divisions.

She is set to receive situation reports from the officials and issue further directives to them over the government’s initiatives in place to tackle the novel coronavirus pandemic, which has killed 30 people so far in the country.

The videoconference will start at 10am on Sunday and Sheikh Hasina will join it from her official residence, Ganabhaban, in Dhaka, according to the press wing of the Prime Minister’s Office. 

The event will be broadcast live by Bangladesh Television and Bangladesh Betar.

Last week, the prime minister had held another a videoconference with the DCs and officials concerned of 15 districts under Chittagong and Sylhet divisions.

The week before, she had addressed the officials of all 64 districts in the country over the coronavirus situation, giving a number of directives to handle the situation better and prevent further spread of the virus.

So far, Bangladesh has confirmed 482 cases of Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, and 30 deaths. Only 36 patients have recovered in the country until now.

The fast spreading deadly disease, since it originated in China’s Wuhan city in December last year, has so far infected more than 1,715,900 people and  claimed 103,800 lives worldwide, according to worldometer.
