74 died in one day: Coronavirus in Bangladesh

The country saw the highest death record in one day in Coronavirus. The Department of Health said 74 people died of coronavirus on Thursday. In the last 24 hours, 6,854 new patients have been identified. Earlier, a maximum of six people were killed in a single day in the country in Coronavirus on Tuesday.

This information was given in the regular press release of the Department of Health on Thursday.

The coronavirus of a maximum of 6,626 people was identified on Wednesday. And 63 people died.

In the last 24 hours (from 8 am on Wednesday to 8 am on Thursday), 33,193 people have been tested. Considering the sample test, the patient identification rate is 20.75 percent.

So far, a total of 6 lakh 7 thousand 132 people have been diagnosed with coronavirus infection in the country. Of these, 9,521 died. A total of 5 lakh 75 thousand 30 people have recovered.

On March 8 last year, the government announced the first coronavirus in the country. Infections began to increase from mid-May last year. By the third week of August, the detection rate was over 20 percent. From then on the detection rate started to decrease.

From June to August, the three months of coronavirus heart disease were severe. In November-December, there was a slight increase but the rest of the time the infection was downward. The second wave of Coronavirus started in March this year. This time the infection is more intense than the first wave. The number of patients undergoing treatment in the country was declining as they were healthier than identified for several months. But since March, the number of patients undergoing treatment has also started increasing again.

Whether an infection is under control in a country is determined by some of the indicators set by the World Health Organization. One of them is the patient identification rate. If the patient identification rate is below 5 percent for more than two consecutive weeks, the situation is considered to be under control. From the beginning to the end of February this year, the detection rate was below 3 percent. Two months later, on March 10, the daily identities were released again. Since then, daily identification has been increasing.

Public health experts say the situation is deteriorating in the second wave of coronavirus infections in the country. As the infection increased, the government issued a 16-point directive on March 29 with some restrictions. One of them is the use of a mask when you go out of the house. But despite the alarming rise in the number of infections, there is still a lack of public hygiene. Public health experts say there is no substitute for hygiene, including wearing a mask, to control infections.
