On Monday, Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam said instructions had already been given to law enforcement agencies to ensure that everybody wears a mask.
"While revealing the decision of today's cabinet meeting, he said in answer to the journalists' question, "It must be difficult to prevent coronavirus infection as it is assumed that the infection is increasing in the region. As a result, the authorities were asked to take precautionary steps.
