Ruling Bangladesh Awami League Secretary-General Obaidul Quader on Saturday urged all political, financial, economic, technical and charitable organizations to remain united in the fight against deadly coronavirus novels in Bangladesh.
In the morning he made the call at a briefing from his home, news agency UNB says.
Quader said those who do not maintain a social distance are putting themselves at risk.
He also called for collective resistance against those who spread rumors.
The AL chief further said it would not tolerate abuses when distributing relief materials.
“Relief must touch the needy,” Quader said, encouraging the wealthy and the party leaders in this crucial moment to stand beside the powerless.
He also said the Padma Multipurpose Bridge’s 28th span had been completed, making 4.2 km visible from the 6.15 km bridge.
