Tour Operators Association of Bangladesh (TOAB) demanded relaxation of unnecessary restrictions at airports and ports

About 30% employees in the tourism sector will be out of jobs due to the coronavirus.

Mentioning this at a press conference at the National Press Club in Dhaka on Monday, Tour Operators Association of Bangladesh (TOAB) demanded relaxation of unnecessary restrictions at airports and ports.

Earlier on Sunday, Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen said Bangladesh has decided to impose a ban on travellers from all European countries except the UK till March 31, beginning Sunday midnight, after detecting two new coronavirus positive cases on Saturday.

Citing the World Health Organization’s declaration of Europe as the new centre point of coronavirus spread, he said the government had to take this difficult step to protect its citizens from the outbreak.

Over 6,500 people have died worldwide due to coronavirus, with more than 170,000 infected as of Monday, according to worldometers.
