“Since the outbreak in March, Bangladeshi frontline workers have been working tirelessly round the clock and risking their own lives, helping people to stay home and prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus disease,” stated a press release issued by the US embassy in Dhaka on Monday.
Addressing to frontline workers and of the debt we owe them, ambassador Miller stated, “They perform remarkable acts of service every day – health care workers, police, customs officials, journalists, people who work in the grocery stores and pharmacies and other businesses, and so many more, so we have what we need to care for ourselves and our families … You are all genuine heroes. You deserve our immense gratitude.”
