If India-like crisis comes to the country, there will be a big crisis, says DGHS chief

The Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) has recommended delaying the return journey of the people who went home to celebrate the Eid-ul-Fitr.

“On the occasion of the Eid, people went to their homes ignoring the health guidelines. That’s why recommendations have been made for delaying the return journey of those and taking measures so that they can return [to their respective workplaces] later,” DGHS Director General Dr Abul Bashar Mohammad Khushid Alam told reporters during his visit to Dhaka Medical College (DMCH) on Friday.

He said: “We have increased our capacity in addressing Covid-19, but we have limitations too. So, we all have to wear masks and must follow the health guidelines.”

The DGHS chief said the government remains alert so that Indian and other variants of coronavirus cannot enter the country and he sought cooperation from all to this end.

If India-like crisis comes to the country, there will be a big crisis, he predicted.

On Thursday, the government decided to extend the ongoing lockdown from May 17 to curb the surge in Covid-19 cases feared after the Eid holidays.

Moreover, the government is also working to give the police magistracy power by amending the Infectious Diseases (Prevention, Control and Eradication) Act-2018 to make people wear masks due to lack of manpower to conduct mobile courts.
