Authorities have imposed strict restrictions in Jessore and Nauapara municipalities of the district to break the chain of Covid-19 transmission.

The decision to impose the restrictions with effect from Wednesday midnight was taken at a recent meeting of the District Coronavirus Prevention Committee in view of a surge in Covid cases in the two municipalities.

The district on Wednesday reported 143 new Covid cases in 24 hours, pushing up the infection rate to 49%. Two persons, including a Covid-19 patient, died during this period.

According to an expert team of the Health Services Division, Covid cases are on the rise in Jessore district, which shares its border with India.

As per its three-day report, the infection rate in the district was 29% on June 7, 42% on June 8, and 49% on June 9.

The district has so far recorded 7,701 Covid cases and 84 fatalities. Currently, 72 Covid patients are undergoing treatment at Jessore General Hospital.

Additional District Magistrate Kazi Mohammad Sayemuzzaman said: “The local administration is worried about the overall Covid-19 situation in the district and that’s why it has decided to impose restrictions on public movement in the two municipalities.”

No vehicles will be allowed to leave Jessore district town, while all shops and markets have been asked to stay shut. Only kitchen markets, daily essential shops and pharmacies will stay open.
