Several shopping malls under the two city corporations of the capital are set to open on Sunday in a limited capacity to soften the blow inflicted by the coronavirus pandemic.

However, several markets have opted to remain closed until Eid-ul-Fitr as they do not want to risk spreading the novel virus among customers and staff in such public gatherings.

The markets set to reopen include those in Islampur, New Super Market in Nilkhet, Rapa Plaza in Dhanmondi, Aysha Mosharraf Shopping Complex in Jatrabari, Multiplan Centre in Elephant Road, as well as several outlets of Bata, Aarong and other brands.

Markets which have opted not to reopen include Bashundhara City Shopping Complex, Jamuna Future Market, New Market, Gawsia Super Market, Chadni Chawk, Ismail Mansion in Elephant Road and Eastern Mollika Shopping Complex.

Around 10-15% of shopping malls will open across the country, said Helal Uddin, president of Bangladesh Dokan Malik Samity. 

"We had issued safety instructions for those opening the malls, which they must all comply with to prevent coronavirus infection. If anyone disobeys the instructions, the law enforcers will take strict action such as closing down the shop. Safety equipment will be provided by the market and shop owners," he added.
