Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday told the Jatiya Sangsad that her government is well–aware of the possible second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Corona second wave has started coming to our country . . . And we are well-aware of that,” the prime minister said this in her closing address of the 10th session (Special on the occasion of Mujib Year) of the Eleventh Jatiya Sangsad.

Sheikh Hasina also urged the people to maintain overall health rules and wear face masks, reports BSS.

PM called upon everyone to maintain the health rules, including wearing a face mask and avoiding mass-gathering, as the second wave of COVID-19, experts apprehend, is about to knocking at the door.

“Drink a little warm water, gargle with a little warm water, wash your hands properly, keep your house clean and tidy . . . Everyone should follow the health rules properly,” she told the House this evening with Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury in the chair.

Referring to the first outbreak of the lethal virus that affected the country in March last, the premier said, “We could not do much in the last time (at the outbreak of the Coronavirus) as it came suddenly. But this time we have already taken more preparations to tackle the possible situation.”
