The ongoing restrictions on overall activities and movement of people and vehicles have been extended for a week in a bid to prevent the spread of Covid-19. A gazette notification may be issued in this regard on Tuesday (Apr 27) , State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain said.

The government has decided to extend the ongoing restrictions on overall activities and movement of people for more a week in a bid to stem the spread of Covid-19.

“Considering the global situation and following the advice of public health experts, a decision has been taken to extend the ongoing restrictions for more a week,” State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain said.
