Get a booster jab to protect yourself and others from Omicron in Britain

We need to protect our community against a new wave.

We've come a long way in Britain regardless of what mainstream media say about us Bangladeshis in Britain!

Many of us live in overcrowded housing conditions  just like many Pakistanis.  We also work in public facing jobs just like many Afro- Caribbean communities. 

Regardless of our challenges, according to the government's  Covid Disparities Report 2021 published on 3 December 2021:

'Bangladeshi group was the only ethnic group...the highest vaccine uptake at 91.7%.'

We must not forget how far we, as a community, have come.

We just need to push a bit more to protect ourselves from Omicron by getting a booster.

This community has experienced tragedies and unique difficulties due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the likes of which are unprecedented within current living generations.   BritBanglCovid believes that this community needs protection by providing sufficient support and resources in its culture and language to prevent further isolation. Having explored the community through individual anecdotes via interviews and a survey, BritBanglaCovid was able to produce this report to protect the wellbeing of Bangladeshis in Britain. RECOMMENDATIONS: 1. Faster intervention by authorities in the language affected by minority communities to save lives.  2. Investment by authorities on specific language programmes to support vulnerable and excluded communities (beyond written word) such as use of spoken word voice recordings, telephone and face to face conversations because many Bangladeshis have no formal

Maium remembers Bangladesh being overcrowded as a child. His initial experience of the UK was completely the opposite.  ‘Everything was different. It was beautiful and nice. It was very different from the country I was born in. Obviously, I was very young at the time. In Bangladesh, I was use to being with Bangladeshi people. When I came here I see a different variety of people.’ Maium came to the UK in 1984. He was 5 years old.
