It frightens me that despite the worsening conditions in Bangladesh, its business as usual whenever I step out of the house. It seems that the public has given up on safety measures that need to be followed. There is no social distancing, and masks are not being worn properly either. Our prime minister has warned of a second wave with the approaching winter. I earnestly believe that we must brace ourselves and take every possible precaution to prevent Covid-19 from spreading further and causing greater damage.
