Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said the government was getting all the district hospitals ready with ICUs and oxygen supplies to provide healthcare services to Covid-19 patients in the upcoming winter.

“The outbreak of coronavirus began last winter. It may surge again in the upcoming winter. Keeping it in mind, we are arranging all sorts of medical services, including setting up ICUs and ensuring oxygen, in every district hospital,” she said.

The prime minister made the statement while formally inaugurating the Itna-Mithamoin-Austagram all-weather road in Kishoreganj to traffic, via videoconference from Ganabhaban.

The prime minister said the government instantly recruited some 2,000 doctors, 3,000 nurses and a good number of medical technicians following the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The road constructed at a cost of Tk 874.08 crore connects three upazilas of Kishoreganj - Itna, Mithamoin and Austagram.

The Itna-Mithamoin-Austagram road goes straight through the vast haor area in parallel with Dhanu and Baulai rivers starting from Itna Upazila Sadar to Austagram via Mithamoin Upazila.

The road has already become a beautiful destination for travellers and holidaymakers, even before its formal inauguration.

After the inauguration, the prime minister exchanged views with local people who were connected from Mithamoin Upazila. Local MPs and local dignitaries of Kishoreganj district were present at the Mithamoin end.
