Bangladesh government has imposed strict lockdown due to sudden rise in Covid-19 cases, driven by the Delta variant. “No one will be allowed to go out except in case of an emergency during this period,” the government said in a statement, adding army troops alongside law-enforcement agencies would be deployed to enforce the lockdown.
All offices and transportation will be shut during this period while factories, including the country’s prime garment export sector, will be allowed to remain open if they follow health protocols, it said. Bangladesh sealed its border with India in April as a precaution against infection, although trade continues.
