He warned that the restaurants will be fined if they defy this rule.
Zahid Maleque said the cabinet division will issue a directive in this regard within 15 days.
Replying to a question, he said the Covid situation in the country has not yet reached such a stage that lockdown should be enforced. “We’re not thinking about a lockdown at this moment.”
The minister said they will focus on cent per cent masking to prevent the spike in Covid cases. “All must wear masks everywhere. Those who will flout the rule will be fined.”
Besides, he said, if anyone gets into public transport without a mask will be fined by a mobile court.
