Bangladesh's State Minister for Public Administration, Farhad Hossain, has announced a 7-day lockdown for both the private and public sectors of Bangladesh, from Monday, June 28, until Sunday, July 4, 2021, to curb the Covid-19 transmission ("Banks and other financial institutions will operate on a limited scale").
As per the aforementioned announcement, "Initially the lockdown will be imposed for seven days, which may be extended further depending on the Covid-19 situation.".
Last year, Bangladesh underwent a run of Covid19 public holidays, beginning in March (2020-03-23), when the government of Bangladesh declared non-working public holidays from March 26 to April 4, 2020, for both the public and private sectors.
The initially announced period of public holidays in Bangladesh was then extended until April 14, 2020 (2020-04-03), then until April 25, 2020 (2020-04-10), then until May 6 (2020-04-23), then until until May 16 (2020-05-02), and until May 30, 2020 (2020-05-13), until finally the run came to an end in late May 2020, when Bangladesh's State Minister for Public Administration, Farhad Hossain, announced that the then current run of Covid19 public holidays would not be extended any further.
