There is no scope for complacency

With over 5,000 daily cases -- the highest registered in Bangladesh -- along with almost 50 deaths occurring this week, we simply can no longer deny that this second wave of Covid-19 is well and truly upon us, and simply sitting about will not bring about any improvements to the fast deteriorating predicament.

To that end, the government had to take action, and the fact that once again, we are seeing tougher restrictions in movement is unfortunate, because no one wanted to see it come to this again. However, in the light of the day-by-day increase in cases and deaths, it was the only option, and the right decision to take by the government.

While now we have these restrictions and directives in place, it goes without saying that following through with them is crucial, and all Bangladeshis must do their part to ensure that none of these rules are being flouted in any way.

After all, it has been the growing disregard for safety measures that exacerbated what had become a manageable situation in the country with regards to Covid-19 and we simply cannot afford to make that mistake again, now that we are back to grim times.

Indeed, the government can have all the directives in place, but it must be strict with enforcing them, and the public too must respond. Every day, lives are increasingly being lost, and if we stand any chance of curbing the spread of this second wave, there is no scope for complacency, and everyone must do their part in ensuring we are successful.
