The graph of coronavirus infection and death is progressively upward in Bangladesh. On Friday, the daily attack reached its peak in Bangladesh. In that situation, a nationwide lockdown was announced from next Monday (April 5). According to the Dhaka Tribune, Obaidul Quader, Bangladesh’s road transport minister and general secretary of the ruling Awami League, said in Dhaka on Saturday that the number of corona victims and deaths was rising across the country. Due to this, lockdown is starting in Bangladesh from Monday to stop the corona spread.
However, emergency services will remain on during the lockdown. Besides, factories will also be open. Employees, however, have to work in different shifts in compliance with corona safety regulations. Minister of State for Public Administration Farhad Hossain said, “Every office and court will be closed during this lockdown.” But the factories will be able to continue working in turn. ‘But why shouldn’t the factories be closed? In response, Farhad said, “If we close the factory, the workers may have to leave the workplace and go home.”
The number of victims has been increasing in Bangladesh for the last few days. That is why 18 directives were issued by the Prime Minister’s Office last Monday. Any kind of gathering, including social, political, religious, was banned. Despite this, the situation has not improved. On Friday, 6,730 new corona cases were reported in Bangladesh. Which is still the highest in terms of daily exposure. And as a result of that record infection, the total number of corona infections in Bangladesh stands at 624,594. In addition, according to official data, the total death toll has risen to 9,155 in the last 24 hours, with 50 deaths from coronary heart disease. In that situation, this time Sheikh Hasina’s administration went on the path of lockdown.
