As the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) has identified it as the hotspot of coronavirus transmission, the entire district of Narayanganj is going to be put under complete lockdown from Wednesday.
The district will remain under lockdown until further notice, said an ISPR release on Tuesday night.
However, emergency services like medical care and supply chain will remain out of the purview of the restrictions, it said.
Civil administration, Armed Forces and other law enforcement agencies in coordination with local representatives will jointly work to this end, said the release signed by ISPR Director Lt Col Abdulla Ibne Jayed.
Bangladesh on Tuesday reported 41 more coronavirus cases, including 15 from Narayanganj.
