The photo was taken yesterday morning. Photo: Palash Khan
Shopkeepers of the wholesale fruit market in the capital’s Karwan Bazar sleeping under a shade yesterday afternoon. Business is slow at that time of day, and in the intense heat the shopkeepers opted for some respite. They are apparently unconcerned about social distancing and wearing masks amid the Covid-19 spike. Photo: Anisur Rahman
