Bangladesh to recruit another 2,000 doctors, 3,000 health workers to fight coronavirus

desk:29 may
The government is hiring another 2,000 doctors and 3,000 medical technologists, technicians and radiographers to tackle an aggressive coronavirus outbreak in Bangladesh.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina approved the recruitment and the process of appointing medical technologists, technicians and radiographers has begun, Habibur Rahman, the director of management information system at the health directorate, told bdnews24.com on Thursday.

The recruitment will take May appointment counts for doctors and other health workers to a record 10,000.

Earlier, in the first week of May, the government recruited 2,000 doctors and 5,000 nurses to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

They have started working at COVID-19 hospitals across the country as the recruiting process ended a week ago, Habibur said.

Dhaka Civil Surgeon’s office is providing them with training about the treatment of COVID-19 patients and hygiene protocols to keep them safe.

“The directorate is recruiting a record number of 10,000 doctors, nurses and health officials in a single month something the Directorate General of Health Services never experienced before,” Habibur said.

As many as 1,200 technologists, 1,650 technicians and 150 radiographers will be recruited to treat COVID-19 patients and they will be deployed in hospitals and medical laboratories once the situation becomes normal, he added.
