Prime Minister and Leader of the House Sheikh Hasina said coronavirus infections and mortality rates in the country are comparatively low compared to other countries in the world.

She made the disclosure while responding to a question from Mymensingh-11 lawmaker Kazim Uddin Ahmed during the question and answer session scheduled for the Prime Minister in the Jatiya Sangsad on Wednesday (January 20).

“Work to procure three crore doses of coronavirus vaccines is underway. Vaccination programme will begin soon. Corona infections and mortality rates in the country are comparatively low compared to other countries in the world due to the time-befitting steps undertaken by our government to prevent the spread of the virus infection,” Sheikh Hasina said.
