In a bid to fight the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic, Salma Adil Foundation (SAF), in collaboration with Chittagong Medical College Teachers Association (CMCTA), has installed a dedicated Covid-19 testing booth for the frontline doctors.

The booth was installed at Shah Alam Bir Uttam auditorium of Chittagong Medical College and Hospital (CMCH), said to a press release.

The Covid-19 testing booth was officially inaugurated on Tuesday morning, it said. 

During the ceremony, CMCH Principal Professor Dr Shahena Akter and CMCTA President Dr Md Monowarul Haque Shamim were present there.

Among others, Ahmadul Islam Chowdhury, prominent columnist and Islamic researcher, and Advocate Saimon were present on behalf of Salma Adil Foundation. 

Chittagong Medical College Teachers Association applauded SAF for setting up a separate Covid-19 testing booth for the frontline doctors in this hard time of pandemic. Though the sample collecting booth is installed mainly for the frontline doctors, but a limited number of general people can also avail the services.

Commenting on the initiative SAF Founding Director Salma Adil said: “As a Chittagonian, I always try to stand by the people of city when they need it most. This is a small effort to make it easier to provide Covid-19 testing facilities to those frontline doctors, who are risking their own lives to serve our people during this pandemic situation. So, I felt it’s my duty to stand by the local doctors.” 

Since the chaos wrought by the Covid-19 pandemic first hit in Bangladesh, the SAF has been providing kind support to the general people belonging from every walks of life. 

Last year, SAF handed over food and grocery items to the doorstep of thousands of needy people all over the country and it’s all free-of-cost. In terms of financial assistance, the foundation also extended their kind support to the jobless people through mobile banking, who were heavily affected by the lockdown. 

Furthermore, to combat the pandemic, SAF took the responsibility of sending consignments of lifesaving protective gears i.e. Personal Safety Equipments (PPEs) to the frontliners such as doctors, law enforcers, and journalists. Moreover, a pool of dedicated volunteers from SAF took care of the burial of the Covid-19 patients along with providing free tests to countless people with Corona symptoms in Dhaka and Chittagong.
