Bangladesh Health DG about Corona lockdown

 Coronavirus infections are on the rise in the country. The number of diagnoses and deaths has increased over the past few days. In this situation, there is no need to give a lockdown in the country, said the Director General of the Department of Health, Prof. ABM Khurshid Alam .




We have not been given any instructions for a strict lockdown," he told reporters at the health department on Tuesday. However, the previous health rules were followed more and more, and there was talk of promoting them.

"We have been instructed - to avoid crowds in restaurants, transport, to mask everyone, not to crowd people in tourist centers."

He said the meeting was instructed on what the Department of Health should do to prevent coronavirus infection.


The DG of health said that the most importance has been given to making wearing of mask compulsory. We have been instructed to seek the help of law enforcement agencies if necessary.


Towards the end of 2019, the first coronavirus was detected in Wuhan, China, and then gradually spread around the world. Corona was first identified on March 7 in Bangladesh. The first death occurred on 17 March. At that time many countries went to lockdown as corona infection was increasing all over the world. Bangladesh was given lockdown even though it was late. Lockdown lasts for 7 days in a row. All offices, courts, business establishments, educational institutions, mills, shops and places of worship were closed and vehicles were banned. People are advised to stay at home. 16 crore people of the country are also under house arrest .

The plan was to divide the country into red, yellow and green zones to control the spread of the virus, and to impose lockdown restrictions according to the situation. The system was also piloted in a few areas. But later it did not go ahead. 


The number of people infected with coronavirus in the country has increased to 5 lakh 60 thousand 6 people. So far 6,597 people have died from this diseas
