Covid-19 brought under control with united efforts: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that the government has been able to successfully face the Covid-19 pandemic with united efforts of all sectors and the situation is now under control.

The Prime Minister said this when newly-appointed Australian High Commissioner Jeremy Bruer met her at her official residence Ganobhaban on Wednesday.

We have engaged all the government agencies, including the administration, armed forces, police personnel, party leaders and workers, to face the challenges and combat the Covid-19, she said.

PM Sheikh Hasina’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the meeting.

Sheikh Hasina said the Prime Minister described the present situation of the novel coronavirus in Bangladesh as under control.

On the other hand, she said that Bangladesh is continuing its dialogue with Myanmar to send back the Rohingyas to their homeland. 

The Australian envoy highly appreciated Bangladesh’s success in facing the Covid-19 pandemic, saying that Bangladesh is ahead of Australia in the vaccination programme.
