Indeed it is good news for all, that COVID-19 infection rate is gradually showing a downward trend with 6.54 recorded on Tuesday. The development comes as schools have opened their doors while very soon the universities will follow suit. As the schools opened it has been reported that its the parents and not the students who are violating safety health rules like crowding outside campuses, Many were not even wearing masks.
Thus, even if the school authorities are taking health measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the parents are not being helpful and it leaves us with the fear of sudden spurt of the deadly virus.
The COVID-19 pandemic has seriously affected the lives of children and their families across the globe. UNICEF is working with experts to ensure health workers have the information and resources they need to keep children healthy and learning. Bangladesh recorded the lowest COVID-19 death of 36 on Tuesday, the lowest in the past three months, while the overall situation looks positive. The virus has not yet gone for good and might never be banished. Everyone must be cautious about health rules. There is no room for complacent.
There are fears of a third wave in the winter season and it has re-appeared in China and the United States, while in Britain schools were shut after a sudden spiral of delta variant of the virus. Bangladesh can ill afford such a situation as it struggles to ensure treatment and vaccination of its population.
Only vaccines can help end the pandemic, according to experts and we propose that teams should go to educational institutions and start giving the jab once the WHO approval comes.
