BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir received his first dose of the coronavirus vaccine on Monday.

He received the jab at Kuwait Maitree Hospital in the morning, the BNP leader told UNB.

He went to Singapore for treatment on January 30 and returned home last Thursday.

Meanwhile, BNP Standing Committee members Nazrul Islam Khahn, Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury, Chairperson’s adviser Zainul Abedin Faruk and party’s Joint Secretary General Mahbub Uddin Khokon have already received their first doses of the vaccine.

Bangladesh launched a mass countrywide vaccine drive on February 7. Earlier, the government signed a deal with the Serum Institute of India for 30 million doses of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.

SII are expected to provide all the doses by June this year.

So far, 4,399,324 people have registered for the vaccine and 3,110,525 have received their first shots. The second doses must be taken 8-12 weeks after the first jab.

Bangladesh reported its first coronavirus cases on March 8 last year and the first death on March 18.

Until Monday, the country had reported 546,801 cases and 8,416 fatalities. There have been 497,797 recoveries, so far.
