Many people are dying and getting infected every day in Europe and America, comparing to that Bangladesh is in better situation, Health Minister Dr. Zahid Malek said today.
"We are constantly working under the direction of the prime minister. But it turns out people are not fully complying with the lockdown. Many people are gathering in the markets, many are wandering around outside," the minister said during a regular briefing about the Corona situation by Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) on Monday.
He also said, "The virus is now in community transmission level in the country. So, you can be infected if you wander outside. So, it has to be avoided."
"It should be kept in mind that community transmission should not be increased. We need to strengthen our hospital system. But it must be understood that no country can provide the treatment of millions of patients in hospitals. That's why our main goal is to stay home and test" the minister said further.
So far 39 people have died from the deadly virus and 803 got infected in Bangladesh.
