Bangladesh on Monday recorded its highest-ever daily Covid caseload – 5,181 cases along with 45 deaths

The government at the moment is not considering general holidays like last year to tackle the transmission of coronavirus, State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain said on Monday.

“There has neither been any such decision nor discussion [on the issue],” he told reporters at the Bangladesh Secretariat, replying to a question.

Bangladesh on Monday recorded its highest-ever daily coronavirus infection – 5,181 – and 45 deaths.

The infection rate has been upward for a number of days now. The government has issued 18 directives to curb transmission of the deadly virus.

“We’ll follow these directives for two weeks and see how things turn out. We’ll issue further directives later,” he said.

State Minister Hossain said it is possible to prevent Covid-19 if everyone properly follows the health safety guidelines – wearing masks, maintaining physical distance, and washing hands.

“Many people haven’t been infected as they’re careful. It’s proven that we can control the coronavirus [situation] if we remain alert,” the state minister added.
