Earlier, a press release signed by Professor Mohammad Sahidullah, chairman of the National Technical Advisory Committee on Covid-19, on Thursday (June 24) afternoon, recommended a 14-day nationwide shutdown. The recommendation was made at the 36th meeting of the National Technical Advisory Committee on Wednesday night.

According to the recommendation, everything including vehicles, offices and courts should be shut down except for emergency services during the shutdown. If this system is not strictly adhered to, no matter how prepared we are, if the infection continues to grow in this way, the health system will become inadequate.
