Worried, some sit on beds, some on mattresses while many on floor -- all diagnosed with dengue -- waiting to be tended. Such has become the situation in hospitals in Dhaka as they are struggling to accommodate a growing number of patients. The photo was taken from the corridor in front of the children’s ward at Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital yesterday morning.
Covered with nets to protect themselves from mosquitoes, municipality employees demonstrate in front of Jatiya Press Club yesterday. They have been staging a sit-in there since July 14 to press home their demands, including regular payment from state coffer. More than 35,000 employees of 260 municipalities have not received salaries for up to seven years. Photo: Prabir Das
