Online desk : Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said some areas in the Dhaka city may be locked down temporarily to prevent the coronavirus infections.
If necessary, inter-district bus services may be suspended, he said.

“Man wants to remain alive first. For this, which things to be needed will be done,” he said while briefing on recent issues at his Secretariat office in Dhaka on Wednesday.

He said, “We should give importance to medical tests as the World Health Organisation (WHO) Director General said on Tuesday about the significance of tests. We would follow this in any way. Measures have already been taken to tackle deadly coronavirus.”

“Novel coronavirus is a new experience for us. We didn’t have any kind of experience before to face this type of situation. This virus is our national enemy. So, we should face it unitedly,” he added.
