Sheikh Hasina lauds nurse Runu for taking first vaccine shot

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said she would get inoculated after everyone else in the country received the Covid-19 vaccine.

She was speaking after virtually inaugurating Bangladesh’s Covid-19 vaccination campaign on Wednesday afternoon from Ganabhaban, reports Bangla Tribune.

People would have criticized her if she had taken the vaccine before everyone else, the prime minister said.

“I’ll vaccinate others first, then I’ll take it myself,” she added.

Notably, Gonoshasthaya Kendra founder Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury on Friday urged Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to take the first shot of the Covid-19 vaccine when the vaccination program got underway in Bangladesh.

There were some people who harboured negative attitudes towards everything, the prime minister said, as reported by UNB.

Although people did not get help from them, they habitually criticized every endeavour, creating doubts, fear and panic among people, she added.

Five people were vaccinated against Covid-19 soon after the inauguration of the campaign, with Runu Veronica Costa, senior staff nurse at Kurmitola General Hospital in Dhaka, first in line.

At that time, the prime minister asked her, “Are you feeling nervous?"

Praising her for taking the first vaccine shot, Hasina told Runu: “I pray that you will serve many more people in life.”

After Runu, the vaccine was administered to Dr Ahmed Lutfur Moben, Prof Dr Nasima Sultana, Police ADC Md Didarul Islam and Brig Gen M Imran Hamid.
