Two children enjoying themselves on the platform of Kamalapur Railway Station in the capital yesterday before boarding a train with their guardians. Confined to their abodes for months due to the pandemic, they are now overjoyed to be able to start their Eid journey home. In the background, two passengers wait for a train.
Violating health safety rules, Eid holidaymakers bound for southern districts head towards Shimulia Launchh Ghat in Munshiganj yesterday to board vessels. With the “strict lockdown” withdrawn for eight days for the Eid-ul-Azha, bus and launch terminals are now seeing huge crowds of people. Health experts have expressed alarm at such gatherings which may result in the exponential increase of novel coronavirus cases. Photo: Sajjad Hossain
