In line with this, the armed forces adopted a plan to collect medical aid including masks, negative pressure machines, detection kits and PPE, provided by some non-governmental organizations. This was initiated by the Defence Wing of the Bangladesh Embassy in South Korea in cooperation with the South Korean Government in order to strengthen the coronavirus prevention system in Bangladesh.
