COVID19 Emergency Response - Situation Report 9 - 10 June 2020

After a 66-day closure, government and private offices reopened on 31 May. Public transport (buses, trains) were launched and domestic flights resumed. With COVID-19 cases rising, the Government of Bangladesh (GoB) started enforcing a pilot-based, zone lock-down system, designating small areas for specific interventions that include lock-downs. Government is using colour-codes (red, yellow and green) to show infection rates.

DGHS issued a guideline that it is illegal not to wear a mask in public. Further government appealed to faith leaders to disseminate coronavirus prevention messages via loudspeakers from their respective religious centres.
