Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain said this time the
restrictions will be stricter than before. Along with the police, members of
the BGB and the army will be on the ground to enforce the lockdown.
He said that as per the government's announcement to control corona infection, the lockdown will continue from Friday (July 23) to August 5. This restriction will be the 'strictest restriction'. It will be implemented from tomorrow.
He made the remarks to the reporters on Thursday (July 22).
The government had earlier decided that the lockdown would be re-imposed from Friday after a nine-day relaxation for Eid-ul-Adha. However, despite rumors that the lockdown may be delayed after Eid, Farhad said today, "We will start enforcing the lockdown from tomorrow as announced earlier." There will be no change in these restrictions. '
He said everything including office court, garment factory will be closed. It will continue as strictly as the strictest restrictions have been given so far. Since people would not need to come out, before they had to go to the office court, to the garment factory, the restrictions will be stricter than last year.
He added, ‘as the office, workplace will be closed, since those who have gone home have taken their time, they should come after the 5th. They don't need to come (during the lockdown). '
Asking for everyone's cooperation in enforcing the ban, he said, "Restrictions must be obeyed to reduce infection." Must stay at home. Don't go out unnecessarily. If you go out in case of emergency, wear a double mask and follow the hygiene rules. If we can do this for 14 days, the infection will decrease; If not, it will continue to increase, the pressure of the patient in the hospital will come home. So everyone has to cooperate. '
In the last year and a half of the coronavirus outbreak, the most disastrous situation is going on in Bangladesh. The number of patients infected with the corona delta variant has been on the rise since last April. Although it is under some control in May, it is breaking all previous records by July.
