It’s like locking stable after the steed’s stolen

Menon on plan for containment zone

Dividing Covid-19 containment zones after reopening everything, is like locking the stable door after the steed is already stolen, Workers' Party President Rashed Khan Menon said yesterday.

He made the comment while attending a virtual conference with his party leaders, commemorating recently-passed party leader Mustafizur Rahman Kabul.

He said the government seems to have taken the path of "herd immunity".

"It is not clear what the health ministry is doing about tackling coronavirus," Menon said.

The government is likely to start implementing zone-wise lockdown with criteria -- red, yellow, and green -- based on severity of the virus' spread. However, this is yet to be fully implemented. Highly affected areas will be under total lockdown and instructions on health protocol in the zones will be given to prevent further spread of the virus.
