As the Covid-19 cases continue to rise in bordering areas, the local administration has imposed a 14-day lockdown in Damurhuda upazila of Chuadanga district aiming to contain the virus transmission.
Deputy Commissioner of Chuadanga Nazrul Islam Sarkar came up with the announcement of lockdown after concluding an emergency meeting at Upazila Nirbahi Officer's conference room on Monday noon.
The deputy commissioner said due to the significant increase in fresh Covid-19 cases in the upazila, a 14-day lockdown has been imposed to avoid massive transmission of the coronavirus.
The lockdown will begin from 15 June (6am) and continue until 28 June (12am), Nazrul Islam said, adding that the movement of common people has been restricted and advised to maintain health rules during the lockdown.
The Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) will intensify the patrolling at the border to prevent illegal trespassing from the neighboring country, he added.
