Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said, frontline warriors like physicians, health workers, and law enforcement agency members will have priority in getting the inoculate as soon as the vaccines are available.

The premier said this while addressing the nation on Thursday evening (January 7).

She said the use of the Coronavirus vaccine has been started in many countries. In Bangladesh, we are also trying our best to bring the vaccine immediately. Doctors, health workers, law enforcers, and other front liners will get the vaccine on a priority base.

Sheikh Hasina also said that Cyclone Amphan and continuous floods have adversely affected our economy. We have overcome those trouble boldly. But, the world is not yet free from the coronavirus crisis yet. By the grace of almighty, the rate of coronavirus infection and death is comparably low in Bangladesh. We are trying our best to control the pandemic.

She reiterated her clarion call upon all to follow health guidelines, meanwhile, such as wearing of facemasks properly.
