Online desk : Except kitchen markets, groceries and drug stores, all kinds of business establishments have remained closed here for the fourth day amid nationwide lockdown declared by the government to prevent coronavirus infection.

Though people crowd the kitchen markets, most of the Kurigram town and upazila headquarters remains empty. Vendors face great difficulties in selling their perishable vegetables due to less number of visitors in the kitchen markets.

No vehicles, except rickshaws, auto-rickshaws and motorcycles, ply on the roads. The number of commuters travel on the roads has somewhat increased than that of last three days.

However, people of all age groups moving on the roads use face masks.

Kurigram Pourashava, Red Crescent and other voluntary organisations regularly spread disinfectants at important areas of the district and upazilas. Besides, law enforcers including police have been conducting publicity urging people to maintain safe distance and stay indoors.
