Vaccine alone won’t end Corona pandemic: Maleque
MANIKGANJ, June 5, 2021 (BSS) – Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque today said that a vaccine will be a “vital tool” in the global fight against the coronavirus, but it won’t end the Covid-19 pandemic on its own.

He said the financial condition of our country is better than many other countries in the world adding that our GDP is still 6pc.
The function was addressed, among others, by Deputy Commissioner SM Ferdous, District Animal Resource Officer Mahbubul Islam and Manikganj sadar upazila Awami League General Secretary Afsar uddin Sarker with Mohammad Iqbal Hossain in the chair.
