The government of Bangladesh has taken a major initiative in the midst of the Kovid-19 vaccination campaign. He has started applying Kovid-19 vaccine to sex workers of the country’s largest brothel. The South Asian country has already administered the AstraZeneca vaccine to nearly 3 million people over 40 years, but the age barrier for sex workers in the city of Daulatadia has been lifted.
Sex workers are being vaccinated by Kovid-19
Daulatdiya’s health chief Asif Mahmood said, “At least 100 sex workers have already used Kovid-19. It is very important that sex workers get vaccinated … Thousands come to brothels and big brothels Sex workers are at highest risk of the virus. ” The government of Bangladesh has given priority to the elderly, health workers and security forces at the beginning of the vaccination campaign, but the plan is ultimately to secure 80 percent of the population. The first sex workers at the brothel had to travel five kilometers to get to the clinic to get the vaccine, but Mahmood said that the authorities are also planning a dedicated vaccine center inside the brothel.

Dr. Mohammad Ibrahim, Chief of Daulatdia, said that ‘many awareness campaigns’ are being conducted so that more and more people can be inspired to get vaccinated. In Bangladesh, prostitution is legal for women over the age of 18, and 11 brothels are operating across the country. The authorities banned all brothels during a month-long nationwide lockdown in March. Bangladesh is buying around 30 million of AstraZeneca vaccine from Serum Institute of India and will also get another 68 million doses under the Kovacs initiative. More than 8,300 people have died due to Corona virus in the country, while about 5 lakh 45 thousand people have been caught by the virus till Wednesday.
