Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today directed the authorities concerned to strictly implement the "no mask no service" policy at every government and private offices in the wake of the second wave of Covid-19 in many countries in Europe and in America.
She issued the directives during an unscheduled discussion over Covid-19 in the regular Cabinet meeting held at the Secretariat. Sheikh Hasina chaired the meeting joining it from Gono Bhaban through a video conference.
"The 'no mask no service' [policy] will have to be implemented massively. It'll have to be ensured anyhow. It may be through social movements, campaigns or any other means if needed," the PM was quoted as saying by Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam at a press briefing after the meeting.
Noting that there is no room for complacency over the current Covid-19 situation, she said everyone will have to be careful over the possible second wave. No one should come to office under any circumstances without a mask, she said.
