Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina tackled the first wave of covid-19 from her official residence Ganabhaban and the PMO officials attended their office regularly following the premier’s instructions, according to the Annual Report (2019-2020) of the PMO.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Unveiled the report on Wednesday morning at Ganabhaban. Dhaka Tribune obtained a summary of that report.
