The coronavirus, which spread from China’s Wuhan in late December, is now wreaking havoc around the world. Although China has handled the situation a lot, other parts of the world, including Europe, America and Asia, are now suffering severely. The virus has infected more than 2.9 million people worldwide. The death toll has exceeded two lakh. However, more than eight and a quarter lakh patients have already recovered.

On March 08, the first coronavirus patient was identified in Bangladesh. After that, at first a few new infected patients were reported, but now this number is increasing by leaps and bounds. Death is also increasing.

The government has declared a general holiday to curb the spread of the deadly virus. Has taken many more steps. At the heart of these measures is maintaining a social distance between people, especially keeping them at home. But experts fear that the spread of the coronavirus could reach alarming levels as people are not being kept at home despite intensified patrols by the armed forces, RAB and police.
