How long will the lockdown be in Bangladesh?

According to the notification of the government of Bangladesh, a lockdown has been declared for seven days from today. However, various quarters of the government have said that the deadline for lockdown may be extended. The duration of the lockdown may be extend considering the subsequent situation of the virus. If the situation gets out of control, an indefinite lockdown may be declared. If the situation is under control, normal life can be restore by eliminating the lockdown. So we should follow the Lockdown Rules In Bangladesh 2021. Then we can get back to normal life.

When will the lockdown open?

 It is very difficult to say exactly when the lockdown will open. Because even if the deadline is set at seven days, it is more likely to increase. If the Bangladesh government thinks they can control the situation, the lockdown period will be shorter. Again, if they think they can’t control the situation, the lockdown period will increase. So there is no exact information about when the lockdown will open. However, many people think that this year’s lockdown will stay for about 3 months like last year. So we should follow the Lockdown Rules In Bangladesh 2021. Then we can get back to normal life.

Lockdown’s experience

Bangladesh lockdown was given in April last year. We have a lot of experience in last year’s lockdown. We need to deal with the current lockdown by learning from the experiences of  last lockdown. Last time we saw a general holiday was announced before the Bangladesh government announced the lockdown. Due to that holiday, thousands of garment workers and other employees from Dhaka came to the village infected with corona. Which spread from the city to the village.

Also in the last lockdown, people of different classes and professions became unemployed. Officially, some assistance was not enough. Many people were ashamed and reluctant to accept help. Commodity prices skyrocketed as communications became paralyzed. As a result people suffered a lot.

What we need to do is lockdown

  1. To be present where he is. Not traveling from one place to another unnecessarily. Because traveling can spread the virus from one place to another.
  2.  Since people become unemployed in lockdown, they have to save some money. Don’t spend money unnecessarily.
  3. Take care not to increase the price of daily necessities of human life.
