The government has appointed Dr Farid Hossain Miah as the new director (hospitals and clinics) of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

Former director Aminul Hasan has been made OSD amid controversy over various irregularities in the health department in dealing with Covid-19 pandemic.

The Health Ministry issued a gazette notification in this regard on Thursday.

Meanwhile, DGHS has been on the top of discussion across the country for past few weeks after fake Covid-19 testing scams of Regent Hospital and JKG Health Care came to light.
