The Bangladesh Bank has asked all banks to aid the dengue patients in need as a part of their social responsibility.

The central bank made the call in a circular on Wednesday, in the wake of the countrywide dengue outbreak.

The circular said: “Banks can help cover dengue test fees, blood collection, medicine costs, saline, nets, and other medical costs.”
