Young people hanging out on the Central Shaheed Minar premises yesterday. Sitting in close proximity, some of them wore masks while some opted not to. Only yards away hangs a notice asking people not to mill around in the Shaheed Minar area during this time of the Covid-19 outbreak. Blatantly oblivious to the instructions, many were still seen huddling. Photo: Prabir Das
For the last few days, 60-year-old Abdur Razzak has been spending hours on these stairs holding his catheter bag hoping someone from his family would come looking for him at the coronavirus treatment section of Dhaka Medical College Hospital. He said he came from Mymensingh’s Bhaluka with his wife and son and got admitted to the hospital for a surgery in his hip. But they left him after doctors checked his temperature and said he should be tested for coronavirus. Photo: Amran Hossain
Farmers and traders with boats full of pineapples ready to be sold at the Samarita ferry terminal market in Rangamati, which operates every Saturday and Monday. Due to the shutdown, the growers are struggling to sell their seasonal produce. Even after having slashed the prices of the fruits, they are counting losses. Many are planning to form a syndicate together and drop the prices even lower so they won’t have to take their produce back to their farms. The photo was taken recently. Photo: Rajib Raihan
