Shimulia Ferry Terminal in Munshiganj

Crammed with people bound for Dhaka, a ferry reaches Shimulia Ferry Terminal in Munshiganj yesterday. With movement of public transport suspended, thousands are returning to their workplaces using different modes of transport after celebrating Eid at their village homes. Travelling like this is putting people at risk of contracting Covid-19. Photo: Anisur Rahman

the kitchen market

Shoppers pass through a disinfectant tunnel to enter the kitchen market in Motijheel’s AGB colony in the capital. With movement restrictions eased from Sunday, more and more people are likely to get out, and such markets will possibly see higher footfall. The World Health Organization has recently advised against spraying people with disinfectant, citing health reasons and ineffectiveness of the method, but the message does not seem to have reached many. In being cautious against the coronavirus, such well-intended malpractices could jeopardise public health if information is not disseminated properly. The photo was taken yesterday.

Social distancing

Social distancing marks are seen on the floor of ticket counters at the capital’s Kamalapur Railway Station yesterday. The railway authorities will start selling tickets for some intercity trains today afternoon, a day before resuming passenger train services on a limited scale. Photo: Anisur Rahman
