Strict restrictions imposed in Hili land port area as well

A week-long strict lockdown has started in Dinajpur Sadar upazila following a recent surge in Covid-19 cases and deaths

The lockdown began at 6am on Tuesday and will continue till June 21 midnight.

The district’s Deputy Commissioner Khaled Mohammad Zaki issued the lockdown order after a meeting of the District Corona Prevention Committee on Sunday night.

On Tuesday morning, all businesses in the upazila town, except grocery shops, kitchen markets and pharmacies, were found closed. However, different types of vehicles were still on the roads.

The overall scenario is not that of a strict lockdown but police, led by the executive magistrate, were seen patrolling the whole area.

Meanwhile, the local administration imposed strict restrictions in the Hili land port area under Dinajpur's Hakimpur upazila for a week to tackle the surge in Covid-19 transmission.

The restrictions also came into force at 6am on Tuesday, and will continue till 4pm on June 21.

At the Corona Preventive Committee meeting, Hakimpur Upazila Nirbahi Officer Mohammad Nur-e-Alam took the decision to impose strict restrictions in the area.

However, the week-long restrictions will not hamper export-import activities between Bangladesh and India, which will continue on a limited scale following all Covid-19 safety protocols.

According to the Dinajpur civil surgeon, in June so far, 16 people died of Covid-19 in the district. In the last 24-hours, the district reported one death, taking the death toll to 144.
