As many as 6,51,652 people have been attacked with Covid-19 while 5,58,383 people have recovered. The second wave of the deadly viral disease has attacked many countries of the world. Bangladesh is no exception to it.
The disease is infecting people almost every day.
Meanwhile, the scientists apprehend that the third wave of Covid-19 may attack countries including Bangladesh.
On March 18, 202, Bangladesh had reported its first Covid-19 death.
Following a spike in infections, the government took a tougher stance to fight the pandemic.
The country launched a countrywide vaccination drive on February 7. As the daily infection rate keeps rising, the government extended the closure of schools and colleges until May 23.
The Covid-19 first broke out in China’s Wuhan city in late December, 2019, and quickly spread throughout the world, becoming a pandemic in less than three months.
