Govt mulling fresh lockdown extension, gazette on Sunday

The government is considering extending the ongoing lockdown for another week in a bid to prevent the spread of coronavirus infections in the country.

A gazette notification in this regard is likely to be issued tomorrow, Sunday (May 16).

The ongoing lockdown is being extended for another bout to control the reckless movement of people set to return to the capital after the celebration of Eid with their family members.

State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain confirmed the matter.
