Situation may turn worse if health rules not followed: Minister

Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque has said it will not be possible to check the spread of coronavirus or Covid-19 infection in the country, if health regulations are not followed.

"How many beds will we increase futher in the hospital, how many high flow nasal canola will we provide and how much oxygen will we arrange," he posed a question.

Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque  made the comment at a discussion on Thursday.

The minister said, "The number of hospital could not be increased overnight. Hospital beds cannot be enhanced overnight. Even then we have increased from two and a half thousand beds to 7/8 thousand beds within a short time. We have also been able to serve ten times patients. If the number of patients increases further, it is impossible to handle them."

Mentioning awareness by all,  he said,  "We want  to get rid of Covid-19 infection. We hope that we can go back to normal life so that our life would be better."
