It was never seen in the past that restaurants and makeshift shops in the capital city are not selling Iftar items during the month of holy Ramadan.
However, the current coronavirus outbreak made this happen this time as the country is now under a shutdown aimed at curbing the deadly virus.
Meanwhile, Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) permitted established shops and restaurants in the capital to sell Iftar items from Tuesday on conditions that vendors and consumers would follow hygiene and a safe distance.
Besides, no one will be allowed to have Iftar sitting at restaurants and hotels.
A UNB photographer captured the buying and selling of Iftar items across the city on Tuesday.

Both the vendor and consumer put on masks on their faces to prevent any possible transmission of the deadly virus. However, the wet umbrella in the youth's hand indicates that it is raining outside.
Established restaurants start selling Iftar items. The photo shows a restaurant at Mouchak intersection.
Nawabi Bhoj at the Bailey Road are yet to complete their preparations for selling Iftar items due to time constraint as the DMP announced the permission on Monday night.
