Health directorate recommends delaying return journey of holidaymakers

The Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) has recommended delaying the return journey of the people, who went home to celebrate the Eid-ul-Fitr.

 “On the occasion of the Eid, people went to their homes ignoring the health guidelines. That’s why the recommendation has been made for delaying the return journey of those and taking measures so that they can return (to their respective workplaces) later,” DGHS Director-General Dr Abul Bashar Mohammad Khurshid Alam told reporters during his visit to Dhaka Medical College (DMCH) on Friday, reports BSS.

He said: “We have increased our capacity in addressing COVID-19, but we have limitations too. So, we all have to wear masks and must follow the health guidelines.”

The DGHS chief said the government remains alert so that Indian and other variants of coronavirus cannot enter the country and he sought cooperation from all to this end.

If the India-like situation takes place in the country, there will be a big crisis, he predicted.
