Want protection for all from COVID-19

Dhaka, Jan 28 (Agency) Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday asked all concerned to work with utmost sincerity, to make the COVID-19 vaccination programme a success. ‘We want protection for all from Novel Coronavirus. I want to say to you all to work with sincerity to make the Covid-19 vaccination a success.

‘We want cooperation from all so that everything goes well to this end,’ she said, while inaugurating the vaccination campaign at Kurmitola General Hospital through video-conference from her official Ganabhaban residence. The premier said the vaccination programme has been taken, following all the guidelines and protocols of the World Health Organisation (WHO). Describing January 27 as a historic day for Bangladesh, she said, ‘Many countries of the world are yet to start vaccination. But, we have started it, despite being a country of vast population and limited resources.’ She said though the vaccination programme has been taken following the protocols of WHO, some people were out to criticise the initiative, as they have a habit of feeling bad over anything good for the nation.

‘They feel unwell when good things happen. Feeling unwell is a disease. I don’t know whether there is any treatment or vaccine for the disease,’ added Ms Hasina. Despite the fact, she said the government was ready to administer them the vaccines, as their criticism inspires them to work with urgency in procuring the COVID-19 vaccine.
