Bangladesh is now apparently back to the alarming situation it largely saw a few months back when Covid-19 hit the country.
After showing an erratic decline for nearly 70 days, the coronavirus cases keep growing again over the last few days in the country with over 2,000 infection cases getting registered each day.
The main worry is that the number of deaths jumped to 39 on Tuesday from 21 on Monday, indicating that the virus is getting deadlier as the temperature started falling.
The number of corona patients is also increasing at different hospitals over the last few days, prompting the public health experts to urge the government to equip all the hospitals, including the upazila health complexes, with necessary equipment, including adequate oxygen facilities, to ensure proper healthcare services to the infected people.
They also warned that the nation will have to ‘pay dearly’ in the days to come when the temperature will come down to below 15 degrees on average if the government fails to take necessary preventive measures, including forcing people to maintain health safety rules and wear masks mandatorily when they come out of home.
