Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change Md. Shahab Uddin said most people are not interested in getting tested for coronavirus. If one person is infected, the whole family is affected. So if the symptoms of coronavirus appear, everyone should be encouraged to test at their own responsibility.

He said this while addressing a meeting of the Upazila Hospital Management Committee at Juri Upazila Health Complex in Moulvibazar on Saturday.

The minister said everyone should wear a mask to avoid coronavirus infection. The general public should be encouraged to wear masks, maintain social distance and above all adhere to proper hygiene rules.

Juri Upazila Nirbahi Officer Al Imran Ruhul Islam, Upazila Parishad Vice Chairman Rinku Ranjan Das, Women Vice Chairman Ranjita Sharma, Upazila Health and Family Welfare Officer Dr. Committee members including Samarjit Singh were present among others at the event.
