The cabinet department said the local administration could impose a lockdown considering the corona infection.

Cabinet Secretary Khandaker Anwarul Islam came up with the information on Monday.

He said local administration could impose a lockdown considering the corona pandemic situation in any place.

Meanwhile, the Cabinet Division issued a notification on Sunday noon extending the lockdown till midnight on June 6 as the coronavirus situation in the country has not come under control.

Incidentally, the government imposed lockdown from April 5 this year due to the increase of corona infection. Although there was a slow lockdown till April 13, the government declared a 'total lockdown' from April 14 as the infection increased further.

Later, public transport was allowed in the city corporation area. However, long-distance bus, launch and train services were closed till Eid. Long-distance public transport was allowed to run from May 24.
