Banks will remain closed today (Wednesday) as per the Bangladesh Bank's previous announcement due to the recent surge of Covid-19 infection and deaths in the country.
On July 28, Bangladesh Bank issued a circular in this regard. "Banks will remain closed on August 1 and August 4," it said.
Other banking activities will remain in effect as per the central bank circular issued on 13 July, said Bangladesh Bank.
Earlier, Bangladesh Bank directed all banks to operate on a limited scale after Eid from 25 July to 5 August due to the 14-day strict lockdown imposed on 23 July to curb Covid-19 infections.
