The countrywide “total lockdown” would begin on July 1 (Thursday), not Monday (June 28), according to SK Rafiqul Islam, Additional Secretary of the Cabinet Division’s District and Field Admin Wing.

The government said on Saturday that the countrywide lockdown will begin on July 1 for a week, modifying its Friday announcement that the lockdown would begin on Monday.

According to a senior source involved, a high-level meeting virtually convened by home minister Asaduzzaman Khan changed the decision in light of the fiscal year’s closure on June 30.

‘The Cabinet Division is anticipated to issue a circular to this effect on Sunday,’ the official said.

The administration changed its mind on Saturday, a day after announcing a weeklong statewide “tight lockdown” beginning June 28 to combat the ongoing increase in Covid infections. The country has been experiencing an upward trend in Covid cases and deaths for several days.

Covid-19 killed 77 more lives and infected 4,334 more in Bangladesh in the 24 hours that ended at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday.
