Meanwhile, Health Minister Zahid Maleque, in a programme yesterday, said: "No vaccine could be developed for Covid-19 patients so far and there is no specific medicine for it either."
"Wearing masks, maintaining social distancing, getting tested and staying in isolation are the biggest prevention measures now.
"We don't want people to die from Covid-19. There have been many deaths so far. And we are moving towards the peak of Covid-19 cases.
"The government is trying hard. The ferries have been stopped. But people are going to different districts, riding a motorbike or rickshaw. I also noticed mothers taking their children to markets, increasing the risk of both getting infected."
