Amid a surge in new COVID-19 cases, the Bangladeshi government on Monday issued a fresh set of directives for a nationwide "full lockdown" from wednesday onwards. The Cabinet Division on Monday issued a circular with the directives to be effective from 6 a.m. on Wednesday to the midnight of April 21, reports Xinhua news agency. In line with the directives, all government, semi-government, autonomous and private offices will be closed. But the ban will not be applicable to airports, land ports and maritime ports and their offices. The new lockdown imposed with stricter rules demands the closure of markets and shopping malls, but allows restaurants and hotels to remain open from morning to evening but only for takeaway or online services.
