Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said the Ministry of Health showed its enough efficiency in checking the Covid-19 pandemic in the country by properly taking necessary measures in time.
She was speaking at the signing ceremony of the Annual Performance Agreements (APAs) with ministries and divisions for 2020-21 fiscal year on Thursday.
Sheik Hasina said that I think the Health Ministry has shown enough efficiency. We’ve been able to keep this Covid-19 under control as instant measures, which were necessary at that time, had been taken properly.
Prime Minister said many doctors, nurses and other health workers died going to serve patients risking their lives. “Our health workers don’t sit idle,” she said.
Referring to huge criticisms of the Health Ministry, Hasina said many people say many things against the ministry. “There’s a section of people who have the habit of criticizing (govt), but they themselves do nothing.”
The Agriculture Minister, on behalf of the Prime Minister, handed over crests and certificates to them for their outstanding performances in implementing APAs exercising integrity.
