People can apply for the pass at movementpass.police.gov.bd from Wednesday night

Police will issue movement passes online for people who need to go out for emergency purposes during the upcoming seven-day countrywide lockdown from April 14.

According to the Police Headquarters, movement passes will be required to go out during the lockdown in case of emergency or official work. 

The categories under which the passes will be issued have not been made public. 

Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG-Media) Sohel Rana said Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr Benazir Ahmed will inaugurate the app at Rajarbagh Police Lines on Tuesday.

People can apply for the pass at movementpass.police.gov.bd from Wednesday night, April 14.

Conditional permission will be granted for a specified period.

The government is going to enforce the strict lockdown to curb the transmission of coronavirus. On Monday, the country saw the highest number of daily deaths from Covid-19.

Public apathy towards health rules has resulted in a massive upsurge of coronavirus cases in recent days. Health experts have been urging people to properly follow the health guidelines.

Bangladesh reported its first coronavirus cases on March 8 last year and the first death 10 days later.
