Current situation in Bangladesh during Covid Times

We are in contact with our local agents regularly, and of course we keep getting some messages from them occasionally.

News update from Bangladesh (9th of september 2020)
Besides the fact that the stores and mosques are reopened, the government also decided that government services and offices can be reopened for a limited extent. Public transport is also running again and the lock-down and the curfew is lifted. You must be seated in public transport and the wearing of a mask is mandatory as soon as you step out of your house. Anyone who does not comply with the rules will be punished with a fine of TK 4.000 (± € 40,- / ± $ 50,-).

News from Dhaka
Currently, Dhaka has been divided into 3 zones (red - green - yellow). The neighbourhoods are divided into zoned, which are determined by the number of infections per day / per neighbourhood. 
Red zone: densely populated neighbourhoods with over 39 infections per 100.000 citizens.
Yellow zone: densely populated neighborhoods with less than 39 infections per 100.000 citizens. 
Green zone: neighbourhoods with less than 5 infections per 100.000 citizens. 

In these zones, you have to be extra alert. For de red zones applies, no(t yet) a lock-down, but if the infections increase in these neighbourhoods, they will definitely go into lock-down again. During the lockdown, the citizens are not allowed to go outside their house, only when it is really necessary. Restaurants will be closed bazaars can only be visited when necessary (for ex. for grocery shopping). Supermarkets and pharmacies will stay open. 

Below is a representation of the current situation according to our latest reports:
