Bangladesh to go into week-long hard lockdown from April 14

All offices, factories and transport services will be suspended; only emergency services will remain open

Dhaka: The Bangladesh government is going to enforce a week-long hard lockdown across the country starting from April 14, aimed at curbing Covid-19 transmission, since the existing lockdown has proven to be ineffective in ensuring full implementation of health safety rules.

During this lockdown, all government and private offices, factories and industries – including the ready-made garment (RMG) ones – and transport services will remain closed, State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain said on Friday, according to media reports.

Only the emergency services will remain open during the hard lockdown.

A gazette notification in this regard will be issued on Sunday, the media reports said. (Agency)
