Road, Transport, and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said that coronavirus testing facilities will be gradually expanded to all districts.

He made the disclosure while speaking at a regular briefing at his residence in the capital on Thursday.

Quader, also the general secretary of Awami League, stressed the importance of building effective co-ordination among medical institutions to execute the plan.

He noted that there are allegations against some hospitals and clinics of harassing service seekers and advising unnecessary tests. The minister called upon all concerned parties to set an example of humanity amidst the pandemic.

Talking about BNP’s allegations against the government of politicizing the pandemic, Quader said that the government is not doing any politics during the crisis.

“The politics is now to prevent coronavirus infection and save people,” he said, adding that the opposition party is blindly criticizing the government.

The minister reaffirmed that there are adequate stocks of food in the country to to avert any shortages amid the Covid-19 crisis. Foreign currency reserves have risen to thirty-five billion dollar and the remittance flow is good, he said.

He also called upon private organizations not to retrench manpower during the ongoing crisis.
