North South University (NSU) in collaboration with NSU Global Health Institute jointly organized a webinar on the scientific analysis and dialogue of the latest Covid-19 developments on Tuesday.

Titled "For a Better Tomorrow", professionals exchanged of dialogue between and shared their views of the current scenario and the reasons for being optimistic, which will lead to a better tomorrow, said a press release.

Deputy Education Minister Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury attended as chief guest, while MA Kashem, chairman of NSU trustee board was present as special guest.

Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury said, "The reality of our country is that the situation is not the same everywhere. The density of students in everywhere is not the same. A little more time is needed to make a risk-controlled decision and plan that is suitable for everyone in this situation. We will proceed based on expert committee's decision. There are thousands of educational institutions in the country. If these institutions become fully operational, the big challenge we have to face is to check the capabilities of our public health sector to take the kind of risks that may arise in that case. "

MA Kashem said: "The educational institutions are not going to be kept open due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but if a student stays away from taking lessons in this way for a long time, it will hinder the development of merit. For this, students need to be encouraged to learn online. If the kind of damages that have been done in different sectors in the last five months continues like this, then our problem will get worse."

"Many technologies have been developed during the pandemic period, which will benefit us a lot in the future. North South University has always believed in practical research, which helps in decision making for industry and government," said NSU Vice Chancellor Prof Atiqul Islam.

Among others, Prof Dr M Shahidullah, senior child specialist, president of Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council and also chair of the National COVID-19 technical advisory committee, Prof Dr Sanya Tahmina Jhora, additional director general, (Plan & Dev), Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) and other experts were also present.
