A year in, Bangladesh seems to have learned very little about dealing with Covid-19
A couple of days ago, the phone rang from an old friend in the UK. He had heard that I had become badly infected by Covid-19 and wanted an update about the fight or battle I was having.
He asked me: “How come the UK has put Bangladesh on the 'red list' now? I don’t understand as your death numbers are low.” He added that with less than 10,000 deaths in a population of 170 million, Bangladesh is not in a bad situation at all. I pointed out that the positivity rate was shooting up and that was a very serious concern.
