As coronavirus infections and fatalities continue to climb in the country, the government has extended the current lockdown until August 10.
On Thursday, the Cabinet Division published a gazette notice in this regard.
Since July 23, Bangladesh has been under a fresh lockdown, which was meant to end today.
The government has extended the lockdown because the country has been hit hard by the Covid pandemic. Bangladesh's deadliest month was July, with 6,182 deaths, and the pandemic is showing no signs of slowing down, with 200-plus deaths recorded in the first two days of August.
