Days after Prof Abul Kalam Azad resigned from the post of director general and Dr Abul Bashar Mohammad Khurshid Alam was appointed as 27th DG of DGHS, 28 of its officials were transferred yesterday.
The development comes amid widespread criticism and scams related to Covid-19 tests.
DGHS Director (admin) Dr Belal Hossain issued a notice in this regard, asking the officials concerned to join their new posting by 12pm tomorrow.
The Ministry of Health also appointed Dr Farid Hossain Miah as the new director (hospitals and clinics) on July 23, a day after his predecessor – Dr Aminul Hasan -- was made Officer on Special Duty (OSD).
It is a major reshuffle in the DGHS after the new DG took charge, officials said.All 28 transferred officials are assistant surgeons and most of them were already attached to the Bashundhara Convention Centre Grid Hospital, a mega field hospital set up to treat Covid-19 patients.
