This is a much needed issue to talk about for the human life. Every time I open the print media or Watch the TV, see people are getting killed in motor vehicles accident, and the government are way too slow to address the problems, and every accident kill the dream of the family of person who got kill. Please WB do some things ASAP for Bangladesh and The Whole world transport system. May Allah save us all.

Indeed. Road safety is an important issue in South Asia. Accidents during these times are even more difficult - it strains the hospital systems and unnecessarily exposes family members to COVID-19. Good to see World Bank paying attention to this. Can you talk about specific interventions that the World Bank is doing in this regard?
