If someone goes to a bus terminal, railway station or a ferry terminal in Maoa and Paturia, it will be hard to believe the country is passing through a very critical time amid the rising Covid-19 deaths and cases.

Cattle markets in the capital are no exception as most of the people there seem to be least bothered about the killer virus that has been rattling the world for one and a half years. And, this is happening despite health experts’ warning that coronavirus infection and death may shoot up if the country fails to enforce Covid-19 preventive measures.

Let’s take a look at the photos the Business Insider Bangladesh has taken from different spots in the city and outside on Tuesday.
