Natore hat sees huge crowd amid coronavirus epidemic

Despite the ban on public meetings due to coronavirus epidemic, the huge crowd have been seen at Natore's Naldanga weekly hat. The administration closed the hat on Saturday after a photo went viral on Facebook. Four individuals and institutions were fined at the time.

The district administration has asked to shut hats and bazaars to avoid public meetings to prevent coronavirus infection. Buyers and sellers came to Naldanga weekly hat ignoring the instructions and huge crowd was seen in the hat.

A photo went viral shortly after it was posted on Facebook on the hats. When the UNO came to know about the picture he shut down the hat within a very short time. At the time, four individuals and institutions were fined Tk 8,500.

Our correspondent could not reach to the Hat leaseholder despite calling over the phone several times.

Shakib Al Rabbi, a UNO in Naldanga, said the district administration had given eight-point directives to open hats and bazaars. The instructions were not followed in the hat so the hat has been broken.
