Vehicles can move all over the country with passengers maintaining proper health hygiene

The government has decided to allow limited operation of public transport, State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain has said.

“The prime minister has directed to operate public transports on roads and waterways as well as trains with limited passengers from May 31,” the state minister said on Wednesday.

“Really we do not know how many more days we have to fight against the Covid-19 virus, and no medicine has yet been discovered. Therefore, we are going to open all types of government, semi-government and private offices,” he said.

People can also move from one district to another while maintaining proper health hygiene, the minister further said. 

“Vehicles can move all over the country since many people do not have private cars and need to travel,” he added.

Earlier in the afternoon, the state minister said that the ongoing general holidays will not see another extension after May 30. He also said that public transportation will remain suspended.
