Now coronavirus spreads all over the world dengarously.death toll troops day by day.

The United Nations on Saturday said coronavirus can spread fast if preventative measures are not put in place quickly and urged everyone to comply with the measures, according to UNB.

“The United Nations is fully supportive of the measures the government of Bangladesh has been taking to slow the spread of COVID-19,” said the UN in a statement.

Bangladesh, in partnership with the UN, civil society and the private sector, has rapidly operationalised many interventions including enforced quarantine and isolation; intensified risk communication; social distancing; social protection; and the closure of schools and public spaces.

“We urge everyone to comply with these measures,” said the UN.

This will allow extra time for the government and its partners, including the UN agencies, civil society and the private sector, to strengthen medical capacity across the country and support the government in suppressing the pandemic, it said.

The Country Preparedness and Response Plan is planning a document prepared jointly by the United Nations in Bangladesh and concerned government counterparts with participation of a number of civil society partners and other actors.

In line with WHO global guidance, the purpose of the document is to mobilise the UN agencies and partners in support of the government’s response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, said the UN.
