Covid surge: Strict restrictions imposed in Dinajpur Hili area for a week

Rajshahi Metropolitan Police (RMP) inaugurate ‘Police Covid Oxygen Bank’ with 50 oxygen cylinders yesterday to provide free oxygen to Covid-19 patients in the district.

UNB, Dinajpur :
The local administration on Tuesday imposed strict restrictions in the Hili land port area of  Dinajpur's Hakimpur upazila for a week to break the chain of Covid-19 transmission.
The restrictions came into force at 6am, and will continue till 4 pm on June 21.
At an emergency meeting of the Corona Preventive Committee on Monday, Hakimpur Upazila Nirbahi Officer Mohammad Nur-e-Alam took the decision to impose strict restrictions in the area in view of a sudden surge in Covid cases.
However, the week-long restrictions won't hamper export-import activities between Bangladesh and India, which will continue on a limited scale following all Covid-safety protocols.
During the week-long lockdown, kitchen markets and local grocery stores shops will be allowed to operate only from 6am to 4pm. However, anyone found violating health protocols will be penalised.
If anyone is found infected with Covid-19, then their house will be sealed.
Dr Gaddafi Shikder, resident medical officer of Hakimpur Upazila Health Complex, said that so far some 135 people have contracted coronavirus in the upazila, while 101 people have recovered from Covid-19. One person has died of Covid-19 in the upazila to date, he said.
