US declares $25mn more for Bangladesh’s COVID-19 combat

 

DHAKA, Oct 19, 2021 (BSS) –

 

The United States (US) has declared an additional $25 million in urgent COVID-19 assistance to help Bangladesh in national vaccination campaign as well as to improve the quality of patients care. 

     The US government made the assistance through the US Agency for International Development (USAID), a US embassy press release said here today.
 
     In addition to the US donated vaccines, this new US assistance will help Bangladesh expand vaccinations to people across the country, enable health workers to treat critically ill patients more effectively, and enhance the quality of care in health facilities. 

     “This new assistance will also support Bangladesh’s goal of vaccinating 40 percent of the population by the end of the year,” said U.S. Ambassador Miller on the occasion. 

    Since the beginning of the pandemic, the US government has provided a total of over $121 million to support Bangladesh’s response to COVID-19 and continues to work closely with the Bangladeshi government and other partners to protect the health of Bangladeshis.   

    The total US government COVID-19 assistance to date includes the donation of 11.5 million doses of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, and additional support for the rollout of the national vaccination campaign. 

    The US government has also committed $4 billion to support the worldwide COVAX vaccination effort, making it the world’s largest donor for equitable global COVID-19 vaccine access.
