The organisers have been asked to maintain health guidelines such as social distancing, wearing of masks and using the hand sanitiser for people visiting the mandaps.

Police forces will be on mobile duty to deal with law and order situations. The guidelines also require that various ceremonies should be held maintaining religious harmony.

The company was given permission to carry out the phase-3 human trial about a month back by the government. 

Responding to an unconfirmed report about the Chinese company asking for co-financing for a vaccine trial, the Health Division Secretary of the government of Bangladesh Abdul Mannan confirmed to the official news agency BSS on Sunday that Sinovac Biotech Ltd has sent a letter to the government seeking co-financing for COVID 19 vaccine trial.

He said that the company had not asked for co-financing by the Bangladesh  government when it obtained the approval to carry out the trial.
