Health Minister Zahid Maleque expressed concern that coronavirus infection rate may increase centering the flood and celebration of Eid-ul-Azha.
He expressed his concern at the Annual Performance Agreement signing ceremony between different departments and organizations under health education and family welfare division at the health ministry conference room on Thursday.
The Health Minister said, to check spread of corona transmission several health guidelines are asked to follow. But it can be disrupted due to the Eid journey and gathering of people in the cattle markets. In this way the infection rate can increase.
He said, many people have to take shelter at one place in different parts of the country due to flood. In this way it is hard to follow the health guidelines. In these two reasons the rate of corona infection can increase.
