While SAJIDA’s Narayanganj facility caters to COVID-19 patients through isolation and ICU services, SAJIDA’s Keraniganj Hospital continues to serve around 180 patients on average every day. To intensify safety of staﬀ and people visiting the hospital, a new process has been introduced that requires visitors to undergo some primary check-ups conducted by paramedics stationed inside a safety kiosk outside the door. These include basic temperature check and answering questions relevant to COVID-19 symptoms. They are either directed towards the doctor they want to visit or consulted further for COVID-19 testing. SAJIDA Foundation wants to support people aﬀected by coronavirus in all scales and stages of its operations.
