Bangladesh on Thursday entered the second day of weeklong strict restrictions on public movement and gathering to tackle the ongoing surge in Covid-19 cases and deaths.

However, a number of services including the emergency ones, offices and factories are out of the lockdown restrictions in order to keep the economy and life in general moving.

People can also obtain a movement pass to leave home for urgent needs during the lockdown which started Wednesday.

There was some misunderstanding between police and general people, who went out, on Wednesday regarding the movement pass as many were confused about who will and who will not need it.
