What IEDCR will provide information about the country’s coronavirus situation is accurate, said Dr. Abul Kalam Azad, director of Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) in an online press briefing on Monday.

Earlier, Health Minister Zahid Maleque highlighted the coronavirus situation of the country where he informed, “Four more were died by the virus in the last 24 hours. Besides, 29 more people were newly infected.”

About the Health Minister’s information, Prof Dr. Abul Kalam Azad said, “The information given by the minister was correct at that time. I myself gave that information. That was the initial information. Now the information we have presented at the press conference is correct.” 

Mentioning that the Health Minister did not make any briefing on the situation, DGHS director said that he addressed it immediately at a domestic event to inform the country about the situation. “There is no lack of coordination between us.” 

We gave him this information. He spoke at the event about two and a half hours ago. After that we got a lot of information that we have verified and revealed the latest information to you, he added.
