Last Thursday, the National Advisory Committee on Covid-19 recommended a 14-day ‘shutdown’ across the country. A press release signed by the chairman of the committee said that social infection of the special delta species of Covid-19 has been identified and the incidence of corona has already increased in the country. The transmission capacity of this species is relatively high. Analysis of the data of the Department of Health has shown high infection in the whole country, very high infection in the fifties district. The usefulness of the piecemeal program for disease prevention has been questioned.
The advisory committee further said that the Prime Minister has taken all possible steps to procure the vaccine of Covid-19. Thanks and gratitude were expressed to her for this at the meeting.
