RASHIDUR RAHMAN <p>In the recent time a novel corona virus namely SARS-CoV-2 infection has been emerged rapidly and overspread all over the world marking it as a pandemic disease. Till now no pharmaceutical interventions specific to COVID-19 infection such as vaccine has been proven effective. In this circumstances, non-pharmaceutical interventions for example, banning local and international flights, national lockdowns of cities, social distancing, self-isolation, home-quarantine, the closure of schools and universities, closure of government and private offices, banning of mass gatherings would plays a vital role in minimizing the basic reproduction number (R<sub>0</sub>) in expected level. Many Asia pacific countries for example Bangladesh, China, India, Pakistan, Iran, Nepal, New Zealand, and Vietnam adopt, practiced, and implemented those non-pharmaceutical interventions and have success story. Thereby, non-pharmaceutical interventions can contain the spreading of the virus which further reduce long waiting for hospitalization and burden of healthcare system.</p> Copyright (c)
