Govt to classify areas in red, yellow and green zones based on Covid-19 spread

The government is likely to introduce marking areas around the country that are affected by the Covid-19 into three zones — red, yellow and green — based on the severity of the pandemic.

Health Ministry officials said the marking will help prevent the disease from spreading further.

Health Minister Zahid Maleque told reporters after a meeting at the secretariat in Dhaka on Monday that the red zone will be under total lockdown.

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal, LGRD Minister Tajul Islam, PMO Principle Secretary Ahmad Kaikaus, IEDCR Director Dr Meerjady Sabrina Flora, and mayors of Dhaka North, Gazipur, Naryanganj city corporations were present at the closed-door meeting.

“The Health Ministry will mark the three zones across the country and give instructions about the health protocol of each zone.” PMO Principle Secretary Ahmad Kaikaus told Business Mirror after the meeting.

Until Monday, Bangladesh recorded a total of 49,534 Covid-19 cases and deaths of 672 people around the country.

On the other hand, 10,597 people — 21.39% of all infected — have so far made full recovery.
