Later, it was extended till April 11 and further to April 14. Then again, it was prolonged to April 25 in the fourth phase, to May 5 in the fifth phase and finally from May 7 to May 16 in the sixth phase.
In the fifth phase, the government allowed factories to resume operations with a limited number of workers after ensuring their: health, safety, accommodation, and transportation facilities. A large number of apparel factories reopened during that period.
All ministries, divisions and their subordinate offices were involved in providing emergency services on a limited scale during the fifth phase as well.
