Bangladesh government has closed the border with India for 14 days, starting from Monday, as Covid-19 has taken a dangerous turn in the neighbouring country.

The decision was taken by the Foreign Ministry on Sunday. The Home Ministry will close the immigrations from Monday, a source in the Foreign Ministry confirmed.

All movement through the border will remain suspended in a bid to contain coronavirus spread from India, the source added.

However, in case of emergency, Bangladesh mission in Kolkata and Delhi will allow Bangladeshis to enter the country case to case basis, subject to having Covid-19 negative certificate.

Those who will come under special consideration have to go for 14 days home quarantine, according to the meeting decision.

India's second wave has hit with such ferocity that hospitals are running out of oxygen, beds and antiviral drugs. Many patients are being turned away because there was no space for them

Coronavirus infections soared again in the country in a "tsunami" of disease, setting a new world record for cases over past few days.

Country's new daily cases of the coronavirus disease (covid-19) crossed 300,000 for the fourth straight day as the Union ministry of health and family welfare (MoHFW) said on Sunday morning that 349,691 fresh infections were detected in the last 24 hours, taking the infection tally to 16,960,172.

More than 2,000 people succumbed to the viral disease yet again, as the related death toll rose by a record 2,767 fatalities and currently stands at 192,311, the health ministry's dashboard showed on Sunday morning.

Zak at least now valo kaj korse. I think it should be shut for 1 month.

Remember BD needs massive amounts of supply from India and that is probably why they waited so long.

Hopefully they can extend this 2 weeks to more but that depends on BD stockpiling situation.

Big chunk of food import is from India along with cotton, so it is not easy to shut down the borders just like that.

That’s the responsible thing to do right now. Otherwise the new strain might spread to Myanmar and the rest of South East Asia.

We should consider importing from China directly through Myanmar in future.

After all even during Rohingya crisis we didn't stop importing from Myanmar.

So Myanmar can be used as land border with China.

Although I don't know how realistic my thoughts are!

@Old School bhai ,any opinion?

Love you for saying this. Yes should be shut forever.😍

Doesn't matter, is they want to lose West bengal and North East India, what can you say? It's their own decision.

Without Bangladesh these states' economy will collapse.
that is why the sooner these states join BD the better...

Teesta will be solve. Bhramputra river will be solved

No more water issues between india and BD

Agree but is it possible? Will they join in a Muslim majority country? Specially assame?

For others it's possible maybe as Christian majority can join.
