The doctors and nurses of the hospital are ready to provide treatment round the clock.

The coronavirus infected patients will get free treatment from the hospital, he added.
Dr Rajib ul Islam, coordinator at Amzad Khan Memorial Hospital, said, "We have prepared the isolation unit in our hospital to tackle the emergency crisis of the coronavirus pandemic. A special medical team comprising doctors of medicine and other departments are ready to provide treatment."
We have trained the medical team for the purpose, said Rajib adding that the civil surgeon of the district will supervise the isolation unit.
"We have arranged all necessary medical equipment for treatment as well as personal safety kits for doctors and nurses," said the doctor.
Primarily, we have prepared a 20-bed isolation unit and will admit patients after observing their conditions. ICU facility will be available for the serious patient, he added.
The isolation unit has been set up in a separate building so that it does not hamper the treatment of the other patients in the hospital, added Rajib, the coordinator at Amzad Khan Memorial Hospital.
