Movement of people out of their home without urgent reason will be restricted but it will not be applicable for people working in media organisations.
The detailed circular will be issued by the cabinet division today. Bangladesh has been witnessing a sharp rise in COVID cases in recent weeks. Yesterday, the country reported 108 COVID 19 deaths which is the second highest number of deaths in a single day since the virus was first detected in March last year.
