Foreign Minister. AK Abdul Momen said, ‘The total number of vaccines that have arrived in the country and more that are waiting to come are in the line of 24 crore vaccines. We will get a big lot through Kovacs. They will give only when the Ministry of Health says. It will be available under Covax and SynoPharm. ‘

He was speaking to reporters after an event organized by the Dutch-Bangla Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DBCCI) on Wednesday (September 15th).

“We need 26 crore vaccines,” he said. We are getting 24 crores, for now we are happy with that. It will come in March-April next year. Since we will produce the vaccine locally, we are happy with 24 crores at the moment. We hope to be able to get most of our people vaccinated. ‘

Whether there has been any progress with the vaccine with Russia, said in response to the question. “There has been no progress,” Momen said.

Britain, meanwhile, is sheltering citizens of other countries in the country, despite not taking a single dose of the coronavirus vaccine. However, the foreign minister expressed regret over the issue of keeping a red list for Bangladeshi nationals to enter the country.

“Those who have not received a single dose of the vaccine have been sheltered in your country,” he said. Let us (British) citizens who are here go. They did not give a red alert to India, more people died. According to him, we are less. There is no African variant in our country. We should mention this in the report of the Ministry of Health. ‘

Asked if there was any anti-Bangladesh force against the Red Alert, Momen said, “I can’t say that.”

Considering the high rate of coronavirus infection, the United Kingdom included Bangladesh in the red list on April 9. Although British nationals from countries including Bangladesh, which are on the red list for UK travel, can enter the country, they have to stay in the mandatory hotel quarantine for ten days.

The fourth Strategic Dialogue between Dhaka and London was held in Britain on 9 September. There, Foreign Secretary Masood bin Momen requested Britain to review the removal of Bangladesh’s name from the Red List.
