Dhaka:

Bangladesh extended its strict lockdown on Tuesday and announced plans to vaccinate at least 10 million people in a week as the country battles a major Covid-19 surge.

The vaccination drive from August 7 will be led by tens of thousands of health workers at 14,000 health centres, senior minister A.K.M Mozammel Haque said.

"More than 10 million people will be vaccinated in a week. Elderly people, workers and shopkeepers will be given the priority," Haque said.

Health ministry spokesman Maidul Islam Prodhan said there was enough stock to inoculate 12 million people following the arrival of vaccines from China and the US under the Covax initiative.

The minister also said that the nationwide lockdown in place since July 1 -- except for a religious festival in mid-July -- would be extended until August 10.

Bangladesh Aims To Vaccinate 10 Million People In Seven Days
If successful. it will certainly be a Guinness Record 10 million in Seven days, although I am very skeptical about the fulfillment of this target. BD people love to talk big and deliver little.

কোনো চিন্তা কইরেননা। সপ্তাহে এক কোটি টিকা দেওয়া আমাদের জন্য ওয়ান টুর ব্যাপার। আল্লার ইচ্ছা থাকলে সবই হইয়া যাইবো।

Technically BD has enough Chinese(Sinopharm), US(Pfizer/Moderna) and UK(AstraZeneca) vaccines in stock and expected in August to double-vaccinate all these people by the end of August, if there is the minimum 3 week delay between doses.

I don't think they will reach anywhere near this, as they will have to up the currently 3-400,000 a day vaccination numbers by 4-5 times but even doubling this would be good.

I hope your action goes well. Virus is the common enemy of mankind. We need to cooperate and eliminate it together.
