Extended lockdown extends daily bottlenecks for commuters

Bangladesh has entered the third week of lockdown in its effort to put a leash on the surge of Covid-19's second wave.

The deadliest month of pandemic, April, has just passed recording 21% of the total deaths since the outbreak last year.

The onslaught hasn’t stopped yet, as 61 more deaths were logged today.

With the lockdown imposed and extended, all the public transport services remained restricted across the city.

Distressed by the decision, Dhaka dwellers were seen resorting to sharing autorickshaw fares with other passengers, even more than usual, to reach their destination.

However this situation brought the drivers an opportunity to demand extra fares from the passengers.
