Education Desk: The Awami League government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has taken a very tactical stand against the epidemic since the beginning of the corona infection in the country. As the Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina has been leading the fight against Corona from the front.
He has set a unique precedent in dealing with corona by keeping his livelihood active.
At the same time, Corona has been able to quickly control the epidemic by encouraging private hospitals to treat it. The success of Corona’s treatment comes with the well-thought-out steps of the Prime Minister to deal with various conspiracies and plots.
That is why Sheikh Hasina was highly praised in the US Forbes magazine.
While the United States, the United Kingdom, India and many other developed countries are struggling to corona, Bangladesh is a unique example of success.
In the beginning many foreigners left Bangladesh for fear but now they are returning. Because the way Bangladesh has dealt with Corona, even the developed countries have not been able to do it.
Corona is still out of control in America, India. And with that the situation in Bangladesh is under control.
From the very beginning, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Corona emphasized the importance of treatment as well as livelihood. That is why in a few days the garments are opened to a limited extent in compliance with the hygiene rules.
The shops are kept open for a certain period of time. In order to provide income to the poor, middle class and working people. The wheel of the economy is in motion.
At the same time, the distribution of food and cash among the poor across the country provides food for the people.
Apart from this, incentives are given to the industrial development including garments. So that in a few days the economy will gain a lot of momentum.
After the onset of corona infection, stagnation in public life comes down. People who suffer and eat. At that time, Sheikh Hasina stood by the people as a savior.
On April 5, he announced an incentive of Tk 72,750 crore to reduce the financial loss of the corona virus.
Of this, an incentive package of Tk 30,000 crore for industrial loans, Tk 20,000 crore for small and medium enterprises and Tk 5,000 crore for payment of salaries and allowances to workers in export-oriented industries was announced.
Besides, Tk 5,000 crore for low-income people and farmers, Tk 12,500 crore for export development fund, Tk 5,000 crore for preshipment loans, Tk 61 crore for cash assistance to poor people, Tk 75 crore for giving rice to additional 50 lakh families at Tk 10 per kg.
In addition, an additional Tk 400 crore has been allocated in the health sector to combat the corona virus. At the beginning of the Corona infection, when the whole world lost its way, the Prime Minister kept his head down and focused on tackling the crisis.
In the beginning, various types of disorders in the health sector began to appear. The supply of substandard masks and PPE was seized in various public and private hospitals. Apart from this, various other inconsistencies also emerged.
The Prime Minister gave a strong message to rectify those inconsistencies. Health Ministry Secretary Asadul Islam was removed and the ministry was reshuffled.
When various allegations were raised against the DG of the Health Department, a new officer was appointed to the post.
Health Minister Zahid Malek is working to implement the Prime Minister’s directive to bring health services to the doorstep during the Corona period. Several important steps in tackling Corona have brought success to the present government.
The health department was reshuffled through reshuffles in various important posts.
Immediate action has been taken against those against whom various allegations were made during the Coronation period, which has brightened the image of the government.
Such a move by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is widely appreciated at home and abroad. In addition to the influential Forbes magazine in the United States, the World Economic Forum has also praised the Prime Minister’s leadership.
On March 15 this year, at the invitation of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the leaders of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) met in a video conference to address the Corona virus crisis.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina called upon the SAARC leaders to join hands in a video conference from Ganobhaban to take concerted efforts in the fight against corona infection.

On June 4, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina addressed the Vaccine Summit organized by the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) on a virtual platform.
There he called for the rapid discovery of vaccines and called on world leaders to provide grants to raise funds for the organization. Bangabandhu’s daughter Sheikh Hasina has also been widely praised in these programs.
Joining the video conference of the leaders of the SAARC countries, Sheikh Hasina expressed her determination to stand by the people in the crisis of Corona epidemic.
The Prime Minister said, “As long as this crisis does not end, I and my government will stand by you.” Stating that the government is working to ensure the livelihood of the people, Sheikh Hasina said at the time, “On the one hand, we are paying special attention to save the people, on the other hand, the food system, medical system and education system.”
That is why I will tell the people to live their lives by following all the guidelines for health protection. Early in the corona crisis there was a severe crisis of treatment.
If only 4 government hospitals are prescribed for corona treatment, treatment of many corona diseases is disrupted.
Patients continue to be deprived of medical care even if they run in different directions. In this situation, several private hospitals came forward at the call of the Prime Minister.
At a meeting of private hospitals at Anwar Khan Modern Medical College in the capital, led by Anwar Hossain Khan MP, under the direction of the Prime Minister, it was decided to engage in corona treatment. In just two weeks, a separate 200-bed Covid Hospital was launched at Anwar Khan Medical College. This opens up new horizons in corona treatment.
Later many more private hospitals came forward. So that corona patients continue to receive appropriate medical care. Most of the corona patients are still being treated in private hospitals.
In addition, the army, law enforcement, and various voluntary organizations have played and continue to play an outstanding role in countering Corona. All these are under the direct supervision of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
From the beginning till now he has been relentlessly leading. Corona disease is new to the whole world. Such a disorder has never shaken the world at once. Therefore, like all other countries, Bangladesh has had to struggle to deal with this disease in the beginning.
Health Minister Zahid Malek has also openly admitted the matter. Although the Ministry of Health was initially embarrassed about the treatment, including the mask and PPE scandal, it gradually recovered.
Health Minister Zahid Malek took various steps after understanding everything. One of the steps is to increase the scope of treatment by increasing the number of corona tests by setting up new centers in phases.
In addition, adequate medicines for corona treatment including health equipment were provided at various hospitals and new doctors, nurses and technicians were recruited. The situation is improving day by day in continuation of this.
