Bangladesh’s complete lockdown set to begin on Apr 14; notification issued

The government issued a notification on Monday over enforcing a fresh strict lockdown from April 14 to 21 in an effort to stop the spread of the deadly Coronavirus.

Under the fresh lockdown all government, semi-government, autonomous, private offices and financial institutions will remain closed but the officers and employees will have to stay in their respective work stations.

All modes of public transports, including those of road, river, railway and air, will remain suspended during the lockdown.

However, the restriction will not be effective in the case of carrying goods, emergency services and production. But industries and factories will remain open on condition of maintaining health protocols.

The respective industries must take measures to carry their employees in their own vehicles.

Shopping malls and shops will remain closed. Restaurants and hotels will remain open from 12pm to 7pm and 12 am to 6 am with only takeaway/online services.

 

Worsening Covid situation

Bangladesh has reported its highest single-day coronavirus fatalities on Sunday, surpassing Saturday’s figure.

Health authorities confirmed 78 deaths during the past 24 hours till morning. A day earlier, the country recorded 77 fatalities, the highest since coronavirus cases were first reported in March last year.

Fatalities from Covid-19 rose to 9,739 as the mortality rate remained static at 1.42 percent for the third consecutive day.

Bangladesh reported its first coronavirus death on March 18 last year. The virus claimed 568 lives in January this year, 281 in February and 638 in March.

Meanwhile, 5,819 new cases were reported, pushing the local tally to 684,756, according to a handout issued by the Directorate General of Health Services…

The government imposed an apparently lose nationwide lockdown for one week from April 5 as part of its tougher move to contain the spike in both coronavirus infections and fatalities.

But the government allowed the resumption of public transport in city corporation areas from Wednesday as well as reopening shops and shopping malls for five days from Friday in the face of protests against the lockdown.
