In a bid to contain the spread of coronavirus, the government Saturday issued an order making the use of masks mandatory for the citizens while stepping out of their homes.
Action will be taken against the violators, warned the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).
Besides, none would be allowed to go out of their homes from 8pm to 6am unless it is an emergency, the order added.
Bangladesh has recorded its worst week, regarding the infection rate, since the detection of the first Covid-19 cases on March 8. Further, the death toll from the virus has reached 610 people.
Meantime, the government has eased the lockdown and allowed offices to be reopened from Sunday.
