Bangladesh extends border closure with India till June 30

The deadline for land border closure with India has been extended by 16 days to June 30 to deal with the coronavirus. Foreign Secretary Masood bin Momen told the media.

A foreign ministry official said, “At a meeting on Sunday (June 13th), we decided that the border would remain closed until June 30th,”. Only with permission will there be access through a few land ports.

Due to the deteriorating situation in India, Bangladesh closed all land borders with the country for 14 days on April 26. Then it is extended a few points. However, Bangladeshi nationals stranded in India whose visas were valid for 15 days or less were given the opportunity to return home on the condition of a 14-day mandatory quarantine. The same rule still applies.

Bangladesh on Sunday recorded 47 deaths from COVID-19, the highest single-day death toll reported in more than a month. It also registered 2,436 new cases.

The health authorities have also detected the presence of the Delta variant of the coronavirus, which is highly contagious.
