The hospital’s Resident Medical Officer Dr Tapas Kumar Sarkar said they were struggling to handle the rising number of Covid-19 patients.

Kushtia district’s Civil Surgeon Dr HM Anwarul Islam said people were roaming the streets disregarding the health safety rules even amid the countrywide strict lockdown, which could worsen the Covid-19 situation further.
