The number of private cars, public transport, trucks, lorries and covered vans has increased on the roads in the port city of Chattogram as nationwide lockdown is about to start from 14 April.
As a result, vehicles are stuck on the roads for hours in heavy traffic.
A 7-day relaxed lockdown, which is going to end at midnight today, failed to ensure full implementation of health safety rules. Offices and factories were open, and public transport services were plying during the lockdown.
Later, the government decided to enforce a seven-day strict lockdown from 14 April as Covid-19 infections keep surging with each passing day.
Except for emergency service providers, all government, semi-government and private organisations, shops and factories will remain shut during the weeklong lockdown, according to government policymakers.
