Visiting US Deputy Secretary of State Stephen E Biegun on Thursday said that his country seeks long-term partnership with Dhaka to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic as Bangladesh wants early access to prospective vaccines to be developed by the US.
 
“Long-term partnership has become crucial for two countries to fight COVID-19…combined efforts between Bangladesh and US are needed to deal the pandemic,” he told a press briefing after a meeting on COVID-19 and public health partnership at the government-run Kurmitola General Hospital in Dhaka.

Health Minister Zahid Maleque who joined Biegun at the media briefing said that Dhaka has urged the US government to provide vaccine soon after an inoculate was developed in the US.
