Don’t forget Covid protocol after vaccination: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday renewed her call to the people of the country to strictly maintain the health protection guidelines, even after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine.

"[You] don't think that all the problems will be over after taking the Covid-19 shots. You'll have to wear masks always and follow all the health guidelines to keep yourselves protected. I hope everyone will do it," she said.

The Prime Minister made the call while addressing the Mujib Year Graduation Parade of 55th Batch Cadets of Bangladesh Marine Academy (BMA) at Chattogram through a videoconference from her official residence Ganabhaban.

She said though the government is implementing the Covid-19 vaccination programme, all should follow all the health protection guidelines, including using face masks and keeping their hands clean always as these are essentials.

Sheikh Hasina said her government has been making its all-out efforts to ensure all types of health services for the people of Bangladesh and has taken appropriate measures to that end.

Pointing at the graduating cadets, the Prime Minister urged them to brighten the image of Bangladesh both at home and abroad performing their respective responsibilities with utmost honesty, sincerity and competence in the new professional life.

She also stressed the need for exchange of civilizations and culture of Bangladesh alongside bringing back home the good practices of other nations.

"You'll have to perform your own responsibilities with honesty, competence and sincerity so that the image of Bangladesh is brightened everywhere – at home and abroad," Hasina added.
