Directors of all hospitals have been instructed to ensure health services during the Eid holidays, said Minister for Health and Family Welfare Dr Samanta Lal Sen on Tuesday.

"I will make a sudden visit to hospitals and monitor myself so that services are not hampered. I won't tell you when or where I will visit. I will monitor the hospitals not only in Dhaka but outside Dhaka,” he said while talking to reporters at the ministry.

Mentioning that people will enjoy a long holiday this year as Pahela Baishakh will be celebrated after Eid, the minister said instructions were given to the hospital authorities to provide good food to the physicians, who will be on duty during holidays, and patients as most shops remain closed during Eid vacation.

Claiming that the number of patients with dengue infection are decreasing slightly, Samanta, said awareness is the key to curbing dengue.

“First of all, we must stop dengue mosquito breeding and next focus is on treatment. We have already had a meeting about what is needed for treatment. I will sit again after Eid so that there is no shortage of treatment,” he said.
