Hasina mentioned with satisfaction that leaders and workers of Awami League and its associate bodies stood beside the affected common people alongside the government to face the adverse impacts of the coronavirus.

"They worked hard to provide necessary assistance towards the coronavirus-affected people as well as the farmers to have their crops cut and reached homes safely before floods," she added.

The prime minister renewed her call for strictly abiding by the health instructions and wear masks in public places to keep them safe from the coronavirus.
