Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has urged all not to spread panic in the country over the global coronavirus outbreak.

Asking people to remain alert in this regard, the minister also said the government has taken all precautionary measures to stop the spread of coronavirus in the country.

He made the statement while speaking at a press conference at Awami League president's Dhanmondi office, in Dhaka on Tuesday.

Quader also said the government has also begun drives against unscrupulous business syndicates who are trying to cash in on the coronavirus issue.

At the same time, he also said there is no scope to politicise the deferment of the Mujib Year inaugural ceremony considering humanity and public health.
