Holistic action needed for Covid recovery

Take joint initiatives to curb the virus


The world is currently witnessing wave after wave of the deadly coronavirus pandemic. Especially in our neighbouring country India, the situation is really heart-breaking as people are dying there for lack of oxygen.

In the midst of the current situation, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at the 77th session of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN-ESCAP), sought for the developed world and the development partners’ enhanced role in attaining quick recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The premier simultaneously called for inclusive development approach, efficient policies and strategies on universal public health systems from the Asia-Pacific region.


 Governments of countries can formulate a joint awareness

program to follow proper health rules and also can articulate 

effective measures to stop this deadly virus from spreading


Now the representatives of the countries present in the session should take our premier’s points seriously. The developed world, development partners and international financial institutions (IFIs) should come forward in attaining quick recovery from the Covid pandemic. Every necessary step should be taken into account. The development approach should be more inclusive, resilient and environmentally friendly to build back better from any crisis.

Every country should now focus on working together for a sustainable solution of this crisis. More vaccine sources are needed to be found and the maximum population of countries should come under this vaccination drive. People have again become careless about covid and are not maintaining health guidelines.

We must follow health guidelines strictly. Governments of countries can formulate a joint awareness program to follow proper health rules and also can articulate effective measures to stop this deadly virus from spreading. People also have responsibilities and should follow the health protocols even after taking the vaccine for Covid-19.
