Quader urges treatment to dengue patients at minimal cost

Dhaka, July 31 (BAN/ AD): Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said “We call upon doctors to provide treatment to dengue patients at a token money of Tk100 or free of charge, as many patients are not able to test their blood at Tk500 or Tk1,000.” He has urged doctors to provide treatment to dengue patients at a minimal cost on humanitarian ground.

Quader was inaugurating a 3-day cleanliness campaign of Awami League in Dhaka’s Dhanmondi area on Wednesday while he said this. He also added “Aedes mosquito is not so powerful that the government cannot prevent it.”

He said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, has directed the authorities to take all necessary steps to prevent the spread of dengue. He added cleanliness campaigns will continue at city corporations, district, upazila, union, and ward levels across Bangladesh during the 3-day drive aiming to combat dengue.

Quader urged people to clean up their houses and surroundings to prevent dengue spread.“We will conduct cleanness campaign both in cities and rural areas, involving common people,” he added.
