Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said the government has taken all-out preparations to take coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccines at the doorsteps of the people after the arrival of the vaccines in the international market.
“With both government and non-government efforts, coordinated preparations have been taken to reach the vaccine to doorsteps of the people in an easier and faster way,” he told a facemask distribution programme for physicians at the AL president’s Dhanmondi political office on Friday.
The road transport and bridges minister joined the function through a videoconferencing from his official residence on parliament premises, reports BSS.
Under the initiative of AL’s sub-committee of relief and social welfare and sub-committee on health and population, high-quality N-95 facemasks were handed over on the occasion for distribution among physicians.
The AL general secretary urged the leaders and workers to conduct campaigns to raise consciousness among the people about abiding by health guidelines.
The future condition of the coronavirus cannot be predicted beforehand but the government has taken proper measures to face the situation, he added.
