Coronavirus testing facility to be expanded to all districts: Obaidul Quader

Road, Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said coronavirus testing facility will gradually be expanded to all districts.

He said this while speaking at a regular briefing at his residence in the capital this morning.

Quader, also general secretary of Awami League, stressed on building effective coordination among medical institutions to execute the plan.

He noted that there are allegations against some hospitals and clinics of harassing service-seekers, advising unnecessary tests and called upon all concerned to set an example of humanity during the pandemic.

The minister reaffirmed that there are adequate food stocks in the country. Besides, foreign currency reserves have risen to 35 billion dollar and the remittance flow is good.

He called upon the private organisations not to retrench manpower during the ongoing crisis over Covid-19 pandemic.
