Exhausted, a migrant worker dozes off near a gate of a terminal at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 11:30am yesterday. He along with the others, seen in the photo, had been waiting there since Sunday night to catch a flight to Saudi Arabia at 7:00pm yesterday. They reached the airport early due to the weeklong restrictions on transport and public movement imposed to curb the spread of Covid-19. The flight left on schedule. Photo: Sk Enamul Haq
