Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina has said that the government will take a tough stance to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
“Coronavirus has appeared as a pandemic. We are witnessing its blow. Although we have taken some measures to fight the pandemic, we might have to take tougher steps in future to save lives of the people and we must do it,” she said.
She made these remarks addressing the concluding ceremony of a six-month 71th foundation training course for fresh cadre service officers through a video conference from her official Ganabhaban residence in the capital Dhaka.
“The life and livelihoods of the people must go on. We cannot inflict the people with sufferings. But, maintaining health guidelines is crucially important,” she said
The Prime Minister also suggested all to inhale vapor of hot water after returning home alongside doing gurgle which effectively works against the COVID-19.
