Regarding the lockdown, Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam said: “We have instructed the law enforcing authorities to ensure the strict lockdown.”

During this lockdown, people in need will get their food assistance from the concerned deputy commissioners (DC), and upazila nirbahi officers (UNO) under the government's social safety net program, he added.
