Even though Corona is under control, there is no relief right now

* Trying to cope with vaccination * Thinking of booster dose * Vaccination started in slums * Students in the district are also getting vaccinated

The rate of Kovid-19 infection in the country has been below 5 percent for the last two months. Not only that, this rate has been less than one and a half percent for the last few weeks. According to the World Health Organization, coronavirus infections are considered to be under control in a country with a detection rate below 5 percent. At a function on Monday, Health Minister Zahid Malek said the improvement in the Corona situation in Bangladesh was satisfactory. He said Bangladesh ranks third in the world in terms of death toll in Corona in the last seven days. In the first place there is China, then there is Japan. We have been able to deal with the corona infection. The Corona situation in the country has been under control for the last one month.

While the situation may seem comforting, the scientific data and the surrounding situation are different. This is because the use of masks in humans has decreased due to less infection. There is no harm in following the hygiene rules. Meanwhile, a new variant of the corona virus Delta Plus (AY.4.2) has also spread to several countries around the world.

Even after vaccination, deaths are happening in Corona. However, the number of victims who have not been vaccinated is higher in the list of the dead. A press release issued by the Department of Health on Monday said that a total of 26 people have died of corona in the country in the last one week. Of those, 69 percent were not vaccinated. The government has always said that in order to reduce the number of deaths due to coronary heart disease and complications among the victims, hygiene should be observed and everyone should be vaccinated. Meanwhile, the scope of vaccination activities in the country has increased since the end of the vaccination process. According to the Department of Health, more than 11 crore vaccines have been received in the country so far. Initially, the age limit for vaccination was above 40, but in order to bring more people under vaccination, the age limit was reduced to 18. At the grassroots level, special vaccination programs have been observed several times, including special campaigns. Vaccination is also being given to community clinics from November 8. Vaccination activities have started among the slum dwellers in different slums of Dhaka from Tuesday. The immunization program for students of Dhaka (12 to 18 years old) has started from November 1. District level school going students have also been involved in this activity since yesterday.

Meanwhile, in response to a question about the booster dose of expatriates being vaccinated at the 1.5 million estrogen vaccine handover ceremony in Saudi Arabia at the state guest house Padma yesterday, the health minister said the government is considering booster dose of corona vaccine in Bangladesh as in other countries of the world. Most people in the country will be given a booster dose after being vaccinated. Director of the Department of Health and member of the Covid 19 immunization management task force committee on student vaccination activities. Md. Shamsul Haque said vaccination activities for school-going students are underway at eight centers in the capital. District level students have also been involved in this activity since yesterday. Although vaccination was officially started in some districts yesterday, students from 23 districts will be vaccinated in two to three days. Even students from all over the country will be involved in this program in a few days.

Vaccination activities among the slum dwellers started in the capital’s Karail slum on Tuesday. Apart from Karail slum, vaccination activities have been started in Vasantek and Mohammadpur slums. The government has plans to vaccinate other slums in the country in phases.

Former Vice Chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University and a member of the National Technical Advisory Committee on Covid-19 Prof. Dr. Nazrul Islam told Bhorer Kagoj that there is no chance to be relieved seeing the downward trend of corona infection in the country. Rather, there are enough reasons for fear. Corona seems to have disappeared from human behavior. Nowhere in the world has such a situation been created yet. Indifference is growing at the individual level. It goes without saying that there is no awareness. There is still a risk of infection in the coming days. As much as our people are interested in getting vaccinated; Just as much indifference in the case of the best ticker (wearing a mask properly, following hygiene rules). While each vaccine protects against one type of virus, proper hygiene and proper use of masks will protect against all types of viruses.

Pathology, Disease Control and Research Institute (IEDCR) Adviser. Mushtaq Hossain told Bhorer Kagoj that there are many examples of widespread increase from low infections. The same has happened in Kerala, Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, China and Bhutan of India. As a result, there is no reason to think that Corona has taken control even though the Corona infection situation in the country is currently in a comfortable state. If Corona is controlled, all the countries of the world have to do it together.

In this context, the spokesman of the Department of Health and the director of the disease control branch, Professor. Md. Nazmul Islam told Bhorer Kagoj that now the rate of corona infection is low. However, the aspect of human behavior that has made us think is that people have become unconscious again as before. Man’s indifference to hygiene and the use of masks can change the situation at any time.
