THE Bangladesh government has extended the ongoing suspension of all types of public transport operations till April 25, to control the spread of coronavirus.

Bangladesh has reported three more coronavirus deaths, 58 test positive in 24hrs, health minister Zahid Maleque said on Saturday (11).

Road Transport and Highways Division took the decision on Saturday, Abu Naser, deputy chief information officer of Road Transport and Bridges Ministry, said in a statement.

However, all goods-laden vehicles and those used for emergency services, including transportation of  daily essentials, fuel and medicine will remain out of the purview of this suspension, he said.

No goods-laden vehicle is allowed to carry passengers, officials said.

Meanwhile, prime minister Sheikh Hasina will hold a videoconference on Sunday with officials of the districts under Barishal and Khulna divisions to discuss the present COVID-19 situation there.

“The videoconference will take place at 10 am from PM’s official residence Gono Bhaban,” PM’s press secretary Ihsanul Karim said.
