The COVID-19 Pandemic in Bangladesh

Table of Contents

The COVID-19 Pandemic in Bangladesh– Is part of the worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The virus was confirmed to have spread to Bangladesh in March 2020. The first three known cases were reported on 8 March 2020 by the country’s epidemiology institute, IEDCR. Since then, the pandemic has spread day by day over the whole nation and the number of affected people has been increasing.

In order to protect the population, the government declared “lockdown” throughout the nation from 23 March to 30 May and prepared some necessary steps to spread awareness to keep this syndrome away from them.

 Infections remained low until the end of March but saw a steep rise in April.

 In the week ending on 11 April, new cases in Bangladesh grew by 1,155 percent, the highest in Asia, ahead of Indonesia, with 186 percent.

 On 6 May, cases were confirmed in all districts. Rangamati was the last district to report confirmed cases of COVID-19. On 13 June, the number of cases in Bangladesh exceeded the number of cases in China, the country where the outbreak began. Bangladesh reached two grim milestones of 160,000 cases and 2,000 deaths on 5 July and overtook France in terms of the number of cases two days later. The number of recoveries in the country exceeded the number of active cases on 12 July.

Bangladesh is the third most affected country in South Asia, after India and Pakistan.

Medical experts feared that not enough tests were being conducted.

. Newspaper reports and social media continued to report about additional deaths of patients with COVID-19 symptoms. Some of the deceased were treated at COVID-19 isolation centres at hospitals in the districts and others were denied treatment, though no tests were conducted to confirm contagion

For a long time, testing was centralised to only Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) in the capital Dhaka, although patients with symptoms were reported all around the country. On 22 March, Bangladesh declared a 10-day shut down effective from 26 March to 4 April. This was later extended to 30 May.

 Besides, Medical-grade Oxygen has been a concern to look at as the present demand for Oxygen in Bangladesh is around 200 tonnes in a day for medical treatment purposes, which has a significant possibility to elevate at an exponential rate everyday, hence, to meet up the potential needs, Bangladesh is required to ready itself, by establishing a demand forecasting model for Medical-grade Oxygen at the earliest with the coordinated efforts of Department of Public Health Engineering (DPHE); and Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR)..

A series of hotline numbers, email address and the Facebook page of the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) are provided for people to contact if they suspect COVID-19 infection or need more information..

Digital health—or e-Health—is the use of information and communications technology (ICT) to improve health. e-Health innovations are key enablers for achieving and measuring universal health coverage. They can reduce healthcare costs to families, improve equitable access to quality services, efficiently link health systems with social protection programmes, and increase accountability and sustainability of health service delivery.\

By improving its existing e-Health infrastructure and making strategic new investments countries can accelerate progress towards universal health coverage. Properly deployed, e-Health applications can be transformational, particularly in low resource environments, especially when they are harnessed strategically to deliver universal health coverage.

Used for measurement and accountability, e-Health applications can significantly enhance health policy because decisions are made using more reliable and sufficient data in formats and frequencies that ensure better health systems performance. 

When countries have little of their own experience to draw on, support from peers elsewhere in the region can be invaluable. The Asia e-Health Information Network (AeHIN) is a crucial peer-to-peer assistance platform to help countries successfully progress towards universal health coverage by harnessing the benefits of e-Health.

  1. First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and
    clear your head prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

  2. Wonderful blog!
    Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m
    a little
    lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free
    platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..

    Any recommendations? Thanks!

  3. Hey there I am so happy I found your weblog, I really found you
    by mistake, while I was researching on Bing for something else, Anyways I
    am here now and would just like to say thanks for a marvelous post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t
    have time to read it all at the moment but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I
    will be back to read more, Please do keep up the
    excellent work.

  4. I oversee a vape store directory site and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the USA that also markets CBD products. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has written to use to claim that our account has been restricted and have asked us to get rid of PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop directory. We do not offer for sale CBD items such as CBD oil. We simply offer promotion and marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Leading Health and wellness Store and if you take a good look, you will witness that they offer a relatively wide-ranging series of CBD products, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It emerges that PayPal is employing double standards to different companies. As a result of this constraint, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has restricted my payment possibilities and currently, I am intensely dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have talked with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law firm in London and they explained that what PayPal is undertaking is absolutely unlawful and discriminatory as it should be applying a systematic standard to all firms. I am still to consult with an additional attorney from a US law firm in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
