The daily death toll from Covid-19 has dropped to 22 in the last 24 hours, which is the lowest in 53 days.
On 23 March, Bangladesh reported 18 new deaths from the viral disease and the toll continued to rise since then.
Meanwhile, 261 more people were infected with Covid-19 in the last 24 hours, which took the case count to 7,79,796.
The fatality rate was recorded at 1.55% during the period, while the positivity rate dropped to 6.95%, the lowest in 63 days, said a media statement issued by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).
Among the latest day's victims, 17 were men, and 5 were women. All the victims died in different hospitals across the country.
Moreover, 13 of the deceased hailed from the Dhaka Division, 8 from Chattogram, and one from Khulna.
Also, 964 patients were declared free of Covid-19 during the last 24 hours, with a 92.52% recovery rate.
The country's maiden cases were reported on 8 March last year and the first death from the virus was reported on 18 March.
In India, a smaller rise in daily coronavirus infections was reported on Saturday, but deaths stayed near the 4,000 mark.
Over the past 24 hours, India had 326,098 new coronavirus infections for its lowest rise in nearly three weeks, taking the tally to 24.37 million, along with 3,890 deaths.
But the slow growth may reflect lower test rates, which are at their lowest since May 9.
Covid-19 has claimed 3,373,152 lives worldwide and infected 162,593,285 so far, according to the data provided by Worldometer.
