Nasim: No need to worry about swine flu

Update : 04 Mar 2015, 06:42 PM

Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim has urged the people of the country not to worry about swine flu.

“People should not be worried as we are sufficiently equipped for swine flu treatment in case anyone is detected with the virus in the country,” he said yesterday at the inauguration of a regional consultation programme organised by International Organisation for Migration in the capital.

“Several teams are working at every international port in the country to detect anyone carrying the virus,” he said. “We have already taken every possible and necessary steps.”

However, he asked people to remain cautious about the disease.

Eight people died and nearly 1,500 were infected with H1N1 in Bangladesh in 2009. This year, no one has been reported to be infected yet.

India’s swine flu outbreak has killed more than 875 people nationwide since it took hold in mid-December, BBC reports.
