We cannot afford to treat the pandemic with hesitation
The situation in India is dire, to say the least.
Over the course of the last 24 hours, nearly 4,000 people lost their lives to the virus, with experts advising the Indian government to prepare for further waves, even if there are lulls in terms of the precipitous rise of daily Covid cases and deaths.
This is the result of the Indian government’s inability to act sooner to contain the pandemic, a mistake that we here in Bangladesh cannot afford to make.
Thankfully, the current government has remained vigilant regarding the spread of the virus, despite the laxity that was shown during the winter months, with many presuming that Covid-19 was no longer a serious threat.
