Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has called for increased international cooperation to fight the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

In a letter to Chinese President Xi Jinping, Sheikh Hasina urged the president to play a major role in mobilizing the global leaderships to address this unprecedented challenge.

Sheikh Hasina thanked the Chines government for providing medical supplies to Bangladesh and helping it to better prepare in coping with the pandemic, her Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim said on Thursday.

She also extended her gratitude to President Xi, the Chinese people and the government of China for providing large amounts of testing kits, masks, PPE and infrared thermometers to Bangladesh, reports BSS.

The prime minister further appreciated the Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation for contributing hundreds of thousands of masks and testing reagents.

Sheikh Hasina expressed her firm conviction that the people and the government of China will stand by the people of Bangladesh during this global crisis.

“The Chinese support will go a long way in the detection of infected cases as well as the protection of our medical professionals,” she said. 

Praising China’s prompt reactions in the face of the Covid-19 outbreak and its success in containing the virus, the premier said that China has set an example to the whole world, and Bangladesh is also taking a cue from the Chinese experience.
