Lockdown: Temporary exemption in effect for road, water transport till Sunday noon

The government has allowed the movement of all public transport services till Sunday 12pm to help the export-oriented factory workers and officials to return to their workplaces.

Bus, launch and train services will be operational in all routes across the country during this time.

The development was confirmed by the Press Information Department Saturday amid a strict lockdown which will continue till August 5.

Also, the Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) "allowed all water transport to operate from Saturday evening to Sunday 12pm to transport factory workers."

The decisions came a day after the government allowed export-oriented factories to restart production from tomorrow amid the ongoing lockdown.

Despite the suspension of public transports, thousands of people started returning to Dhaka through alternative means on the ninth day of the lockdown Saturday.

A record surge in the number of Covid cases and fatalities in recent days prompted the government to enforce a nationwide stringent lockdown, suspending all outdoor activities unless there is an emergency.
