The Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) lifted the lockdown from Wari on Friday midnight, 21 days after it was enforced.
The lockdown was lifted at 12 a.m. as there is no fresh instruction from the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) and the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) in this regard. Besides, the infection rate in the area has relatively declined, local media reported.
However, the awareness campaign will continue there as before using loudspeakers to make sure that people are following social-distancing rules and recommended health protocols. Other services, including food delivery and coronavirus-testing booths, will be there until Jul 30.
Wari was put under the 21-day lockdown on Jul 4 as the health authorities marked the area as a ‘Red Zone’ due to the high Covid-19 infection rate there.
