According to the notification, the factories dealing with food and food processing, rawhide transportation, protection and processing, and industries manufacturing essential products for the prevention of Covid-19 remain out of the purview of the lockdown restrictions.

Earlier, the government relaxed the Covid-19 restrictions for eight days to keep the economic activities related to the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha moving after 14 days of strict lockdown from July 1. 

Then the Cabinet Division announced another 14-day strict lockdown from 6am of July 23 amid a surge in Covid-19 infections across the country. 

Earlier on Thursday, apparel manufacturers sent a letter to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, pleading to keep apparel factories out of the lockdown restrictions like before. 

On Monday, Bangladesh reported its highest 231 deaths from Covid-19 and 13,321 fresh cases in the 24 hours till 8am on Monday.
