Mia Seppo lauds Bangladesh’s Covid-19 control
UN Resident Coordinator in Bangladesh Mia Seppo has appreciated the joint efforts in testing, tracing and treating patients and thus keeping the pandemic under control in Bangladesh.
"I've been delighted to see how the support provided by the United Nations and our partners has enabled the government to employ innovative methods of testing, tracing and treating patients, and thus keeping the pandemic under control in Bangladesh," she said.
When Covid-19 arrived in Bangladesh in March 2020, Mia said, there were serious concerns over how the country's health system would be able to cope with the overwhelming challenges posed by the pandemic.
She made the remarks after a delegation from the Government, United Nations, and NGO partners observed efforts to combat Covid-19 transmission in Dhaka.
Senior Secretary of the Health Services Division Lokman Hossain Miah and Additional Director General of DGHS, Prof Dr Nasima Sultana also joined the field mission.
