The bordering division had detected its first Covid-19 case in Chuadanga district on March 19 last year.

Meanwhile, in the wake of the surge in cases and deaths, the Khulna district administration imposed stricter restrictions on public movement and gathering in the city and across the district for a week from Tuesday.

However, the first two days of the lockdown saw a random breach of the restrictions on public movement and gathering.

Shops were seen open in many city areas, with some streets experiencing a notable rush of traffic.

Most of the public transports were carrying passengers at full capacity.

People were seen gossiping at tea stalls, having food at eateries, and smoking cigarettes outside. Most of them were not wearing any masks.

Many hawkers and street vendors were also out on the streets to sell daily essentials among various other products.

Police had set up bamboo barricades at various important points of Khulna city but were finding it hard to control public movement. They were seen patrolling the roads and sentencing different terms to people for flouting the lockdown rules and not wearing masks.
