The cabinet division has issued circular extending the ongoing ‘strict restrictions’ till May 23 to restrain transmission of coronavirus in the country. The circular was issued on Sunday afternoon.

Earlier, on Saturday State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain said, the ongoing strict restriction has been extended as precautionary measures considering the transmission situation and also considering the situation of neighboring country India.

Mentionable, to prevent Covid-19 transmission strict lockdown was enforced in the country from early morning of April 14 for next 8 days. At that time the government issued 13 directions to maintain the lockdown.

During the extended period of restriction buses will ply within the districts but inter-district bus services will remain suspended. Besides, train and launch services will remain suspended.

In this period shops and shopping malls will remain open from 10 am to 8 pm after abiding by the health protocols. Mills and factories will remain operational. Government and private offices will remain closed as well except the emergency service providing institutions. Banking transactions will continue in limited basis.
