Dhaka – Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has urged the people not to worry over the new coronavirus outbreak that killed more than 3,400 people and infected more than 100,000 others globally.
Bangladesh has enough capability to face the virus, she said in Dhaka on Sunday.
“All we need to do is to remain clean and follow the instruction from the government,” the Prime Minister said adding that the government had been monitoring the situation round the clock.
“We will take immediate step if any problem arises at any place in the country,” she said
Bangladesh, once of the most densely populated country in the world, has no confirm case of coronavirus despite the fact that some foreign nations and Bangladeshis as well were quarantined over suspicions.
The health ministry is issuing instructions routinely about the coronavirus outbreak. “I will request all to follow those instructions,” Hasina said calling for creating awareness among the general mass as to how to prepare against the pathogen
The outbreak of the virus was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December. The vrus have spread in more than 90 countries across the world with China holding the most fatalities and infections. Italy, Iran, Japan, South Korea and United States are among the worst affected counties.
More than half of those who contracted the virus have now recovered, according to the World Health Organization. No vaccine has been developed yet to prevent the virus.
