We need to be more careful about hygiene: Health Minister

Health Minister Zahid Malek has said that we need to be more careful about health guidelines as the coronavirus cases in the country are increasing. We hope you all will follow the hygiene rules.

He made the remarks at a function held at ICDDR'B Auditorium in Mohakhali on Tuesday afternoon.

"The way we are moving carelessly, it will not take long for the number of patients in the hospital to increase. Coronavirus infection has started increasing again in the country. Even last month, where the corona infection rate was below one percent, it has now risen to two percent," he said. 

He said, "We brought the coronavirus infection under control. But now it is increasing again.  In the last month, the infection rate in the country was 0.6 percent, now it has risen to 2 percent. Daily cases were 30 to 35, now it is increased to 150 to 160." 

Zahid Maleque said, "A good thing for us is that we do not have more than 20 patients in any hospital now. But the way we are moving carelessly, it will not take long for the number of patients to increase in the hospital."

Director General of the Directorate of Health ABM Khurshid Alam, ICDDRB Executive Director Tahmid Ahmed, scientist. Ferdousi Qadri and others were present.
