Muhammad Masum Khan, Dhaka : The whole world is fighting against unprecedented global corona apedemic by maintaining directions prescribed by World Health Organisation (WHO).
Social distancing is the only way to prevent the spread of corona infection. But what is happening in the bank every day across the country.Hundreds of people are gathering, waiting for hours and hours being conjusted forgetting the importance of maintaining social distance. This situation isM risking averyone,even the bank staffs.
The government, low enforcing members, public representative, medical service department, different organisation are working for controling the corona spread.Is it sign of their of their conscious efforts to fight against corona? Who are responsible for it?During corona apedemic banks remain open only one or two days in a week.That is the main reason for this dangerous sight in front of bank. I asked one of the bank officers why didn’t they manage deployment of any police or any other law enforcing member in order to compel the consumers maintaining the line with social distance. They could not answer precisely whether they demanded police to the concerned authority.The officer asked me paradoxically whether is it possible to arrange police here.It is ovbiously possible if the manager want and apply to the government as police are working relentlessly fighting against corona.Nothing is more important to avoid this type of highly risky congestion.Actually bankers think that as they work inside office washing hands again and again using hand sanitation and maintain social distance,they will not be affected. But its their wrong decision.Many bankers are also being affected so far we know all over the country. Government has already distributed incentive money to the bank staffs for their attend enc in bank during corona crisis.What benefit have the public and bankers got from the incentive? In place of incentive PPE Myst have been given to the bank staffs,special transport facility , proper sanitation and deployment of law enforcing member should have been arranged. Then if the banks were kept open for more days at least three days in a week this type of corona harvesting congestion could be avoided.
Besides banks also could maintain the line with their armed and non armed security mens available in every bank. The local councilor should have taken responsibilty in this regard on priority base as they are performing their duties along with the government to keep their area safe from corona infection. The local political, volunteer and different organisation should come forward to assist so that social distance can be maintained. All should remember maintaining social distance is more important than any other thing including providing reliefs. The consumers of the bank come from different parts of a areas therefore if anyone is affected here, they are enough to spread very fast the community infection all around. I asked some conjumers why ther are risking their lives standing in such a dangerous way. They said they had to come at 8 am. When I asked if he could maintain social distance even coming at early.They said they are actually impatient and depressed whether they will withdraw money on that day. There is a wide concret road by the bank.If any security man or any one if needed more than one with whistle took responsibility to arrange the line maintaining social distance it must have been possible. Even if some volunteers,so called powerful leaders avoiding relief distributing show come forward, it must be possible. But now this type of corona harvesting crowd in front of banks across the country can create massacre in our beloved Bangladesh making all fightings,business, sacriice and dedications of all totally failure.May Allah realise the fact and save all of us.
