They have been kept in total 11 quarantine centres under government supervision. Police and Ansar members are guarding the centres."

However, people kept under institutional quarantine have to pay for their food.

Bangladesh shut its border with India after the neighbouring country saw a record surge in Covid cases and fatalities. The Indian variant of the coronavirus is suspected to be more contagious.

A number of Bangladeshis returned home through the Benapole border. All of them were tested for Covid-19 as per government norms.
