Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader said the coronavirus infection has come under control due to the best efforts of the government. However, the situation may get out of control due to the influx of people returning to work after Eid.
He said this in a regular briefing from the government residence on Saturday morning. Obaidul Quader called upon the people to take utmost precaution by avoiding public gatherings to control the situation in Corona. In response to the statement of BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, the Minister for Road Transport and Bridges said, Being. Have you forgotten that when you were in power in 2001, you used a steamroller to brutally torture the leaders and workers of the Awami League? ‘
Obaidul Quader said that even though their parents died during the BNP rule, the Awami League leaders and workers could not go home. The last chance for burial was not given. Awami League leaders and activists were also arrested during Eid prayers.
The general secretary of the Awami League said the government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has not set any precedent for repeating the torture of the BNP era.
From this press conference, Obaidul Quader announced the program of Awami League on the occasion of Sheikh Hasina’s Homecoming Day on 16 May. He said the Awami League’s sub-committee on information and research would exhibit information and newsletters on May 16 and 17. The inaugural function will be held on May 16 at 11 am at Dhanmondi No. 32 in the capital.

The hospital’s director Brigadier General AKM Nasir Uddin told Prothom Alo on Saturday. He urged everyone not to panic over the incident. News has been circulating in various media since Friday that two patients with Indian variants have been admitted to the DNCC Corona Hospital. IEDCR has taken samples.
Quoting Brigadier General AKM Nasir Uddin, he told Prothom Alo on Saturday, “I have told everyone, ‘We don’t know yet whether there is an Indian variant or not.’ Their genome will be sequencing. It will take a few days for the results to come. It cannot be said until the fruit comes. The director of the hospital said that the two women who were admitted to the DNCC hospital came to Bangladesh from India at the end of last month. They took treatment from home due to fever. They came to DNCC hospital on May 12. But the hospital authorities were not informed at first that they were from India. It was later learned that the two women came from India. After examination at the hospital, both of them were caught in the corona.
Brigadier General AKM Nasir Uddin said that since they had recently come from India, the government’s Institute of Pathology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) had been informed about them. The IEDCR has taken samples to find out if they have Indian type of corona in their body or what type of corona they have. The two women are being treated separately at the hospital.
