Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque said the government has a plan to inoculate one crore people every month in a bid to prevent coronavirus infections and is working accordingly.

The health minister disclosed the plan at a press conference held at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) in the capital on Sunday (July 25) noon.

“75 percent of Covid-19 patients admitted to hospitals in cities are from villages. The infection rate has increased by five to six folds since people traveled to villages during the Eid vacation. To stem the coronavirus infections, the government is planning to vaccinate one crore people every month,” Maleque said.
