COVID-19: Saudi embassy in Dhaka halts work

Cairo: The Saudi embassy in Bangladesh has announced it is suspending work in the South Asian country due to a total lockdown imposed there due to a spike in COVID-19 infections.

###

Bangladeshi authorities have said that a nationwide lockdown, except emergency services, will start in the country as of Monday, June 28, due to an alarming surge in Delta variant cases of COVID-19.

“Work at the embassy will be suspended until the curfew is lifted,” the embassy said on Twitter.

The Bangladeshi government said that all public and private offices will close down for a week. Going outdoors during this period will be allowed for medical and emergency reasons only.

Police forces will deploy to enforce the lockdown, which was announced after health authorities in the country reported 108 virus-related deaths, Bangladesh’s highest in a single day since April 12.

Bangladesh has so far registered a total of 883,138 virus cases and 14,053 related deaths.
