We have capacity to produce Covid-19 vaccine: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that we have the capacity to produce Covid-19 vaccine if we get the right opportunity.

The Prime Minister told the 15th session of the 11th Jatiya Sangsad session on Monday.

Taking part in a special discussion on a thanksgiving motion under Rule 147 placed by Principal Md. Abdus Shahid, MP, to express gratitude to UNESCO, she said that it was a great honour for Bangladeshi people as the UN body named the prize after the Father of the Nation.

Sheikh Hasina, also the Leader of the House, said the Bangladeshi youths will come forward like Uganda’s MoTIV Creations Limited which has got the maiden prize for their contribution to the creative economy and has been working to boost talent and creativity of their youths in generating employment.

She mentioned that if Bangladesh gets the chance, it would produce vaccine. It has the capability and the government has already allotted land for the purpose, the prime minister said.

“We can also supply the vaccine to the world,” she said.

The premier said that Bangladesh has been recognised by the world for its success in tackling coronavirus.
