Health Minister Zahid Malek has come under fire in Parliament over corruption in the health sector. However, despite the criticism, the health minister claimed that there was no shortage of drugs to deal with Corona. There was no lack of oxygen. The same treatment has been done here as in America.
Speaker Dr. In yesterday’s session chaired by Shirin Sharmin Chowdhury, BNP MP Harunur Rashid said, ‘The Ministry of Health is a depot of corruption in shopping. The health minister has to be told clearly how to reform this ministry.
Rumin Farhana, a member of the BNP’s reserved women’s seat, said only 25 per cent of the ADP had been spent on health in 10 months. Now it is seeking a new allocation. “The health minister has to answer why 85 per cent of the money remains unused,” he said. Rumin Farhana said, “The Prime Minister has more than once asked the districts to set up ICUs. But new ICUs have been set up in only five districts in a year and a half.
Addressing the Health Minister, Jatiya Party MP Kazi Firoz Rashid said, ‘You are a gentleman. Your father was a minister with me. I know you. You are the son of a very rich family. But you have no authority, what is happening in the Ministry of Health! ‘ He added, ‘The hospital needs oxygen now. MRI, CT scan machine is being brought without bringing it. Being sent to the upazila. They have arranged everything. Can’t drive. ‘
After these criticisms, the Health Minister highlighted the various initiatives of the government to deal with Corona and said, “The death rate in the country due to these reasons is one and a half percent. This rate is two and a half percent in the world.
The minister said the work of enacting the health protection law is in the final stage. Regarding vaccination, he said, “Five lakh doses of vaccine have come from China as a gift. The vaccine was introduced on May 25. Another six lakh doses of vaccine will be available soon as a grant.
