Corona virus infections and deaths are on the rise in the country.
Bangladesh is now one of the top 10 countries in the world in terms of death.
According to the World Health Organization, Bangladesh ranks tenth among the countries in the world with the highest number of deaths due to corona in the last one week (as of July 9).
The highest number of deaths and cases of coronavirus infection were identified on Sunday.
Yesterday, 230 people died and 11,084 new patients were identified in Corona across the country, according to the Department of Health.
Never before has Bangladesh seen so many deaths and new patients in one day.
Till yesterday, the record of identifying the highest number of patients in a single day in the country was 11,851. The highest death toll was 212.
According to the World Health Organization, Brazil topped the list in terms of deaths in the past one week, followed by India.
Bangladesh ranks 12th in the world in terms of identifying new patients.
The Department of Health says that if this trend continues as new patients continue to grow, hospital beds will not be available for the next 8 to 10 days.
The situation will become miserable.
Although there is a record of new patient identification, the rate of patient identification has decreased in the last 24 hours as compared to the last few days.
Sample testing has also increased a lot. During this time a total of 40,015 samples were tested, which is the highest in one day.
In contrast to the test, the patient identification rate was 29.6 percent.
After five consecutive days, the patient identification rate dropped below 30 percent.
In the last five days, the patient identification rate was more than 31 percent.
Public health experts say the effects of government restrictions to slow the spread of the virus could be felt this week.
The patient identification rate may decrease this week. However, the death toll will continue to rise for a couple of more weeks.
Robed Amin, a spokesman for the health department, told the Health Bulletin yesterday that infections had increased across the country.
Patient pressure has increased in Khulna, Dhaka and Chittagong.
The detection rate is 31-32 percent.
If it continues like this, it will not take much time to reach 15 thousand identified daily.
If the number of patients continues to increase, the hospital beds and ICUs will not be empty in the next 8-10 days.
Strict restrictions are in place to control the infection.
But many are seen getting out without an urgent need.
The first case of coronavirus was detected in the country on March 6 last year.
The second wave of infection in the country started from March this year.
The government announced a lockdown from April 5 to control the infection.
The effects of the lockdown began to subside in mid-April.
From mid-May onwards the infection again tends to rise.
From mid-June the situation began to get worse. After Eid-ul-Fitr, the situation in the border districts began to deteriorate.
Later, the infection was seen to increase in all the districts of the country.
The government has imposed strict restrictions for two weeks from July 1 to control the infection.
However, the number of people traveling outside is increasing day by day.
July 21 is the holy Eid-ul-Azha.
The situation is likely to worsen if the Eid-centric commute and the crowd at the Korbani cattle market increase.
According to the Department of Health, a total of 10 lakh 21 thousand 189 people have been infected in the country till yesterday.
Of these, 6 lakh 64 thousand 501 people have recovered.
And 18 thousand 419 people have died. In the last 24 hours, a maximum of 6 people have died in Khulna division.
57 people died in Dhaka division. Besides, 39 people died in Chittagong, 26 in Rajshahi and 22 in Rangpur. The rest are residents of other departments.
Public health experts say the infection can be temporarily slowed down only by issuing lockdowns or restrictions.
But the situation will not come under control. For this, besides lockdown, importance should be given to patient management.
Isolation (isolation) by identifying the infected person by increasing the test, quarantine by identifying the Assad in contact with the infected person, hygiene, especially wearing 100% mask must be ensured.
