The residents of Dhaka woke up to deserted roads as Bangladesh entered a stringent lockdown on Thursday with patrol teams out there to convince people to stay off the streets.

The complete lockdown, which came into effect on Thursday morning to mitigate the spread of coronavirus, will continue till July 7 midnight.

personnel started patrolling the city streets in aid of the civil administration as the government scrambles to bring the Covid-19 situation under control.

Police have set up barricades and check-posts at all important points of the city to monitor the movement of vehicles as well as people. So, most roads in the capital were found almost empty with fewer private vehicles moving.
