'In Bashundhara City Shopping Complex, there are about 1,600 running shops, where about 25,000 people are engaged and we cannot risk getting them infected'

Authorities of Bashundhara City Shopping Complex and Jamuna Future Park, two of the capital’s biggest shopping malls, will not reopen before Eid-ul-Fitr due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Confirming the matter, MA Hannan Azad, president of the Bashundhara Shopping Mall Shop Owners' Association, told Dhaka Tribune that it was quite impossible to maintain social distance when communicating and selling goods to customers at a shopping mall.

“In Bashundhara City Shopping Complex, there are about 1,600 running shops, where about 25,000 people are engaged and we cannot risk getting them infected,” Mannan added.

“So, considering the present situation of the pandemic, the mall authorities and the shop owners decided not to reopen Bashundhara City before Eid-ul-Fitr,” he also said.

On Monday, the government decided to allow shops and malls to remain open till 4:00pm from May 10 maintaining health guidelines, considering Ramadan and Eid-ul-Fitr.

Since the countrywide shutdown enforced by the government to halt the spread of the novel virus, shopping malls remained closed.
