The number of Covid-19 cases in our country is increasing rapidly. Omicron, the new variant of coronavirus is spreading anxiety all over the world. To prevent the spread of this new variant, hygiene rules have to be followed. A large number of people gather at the Dhaka International Trade Fair (DITF) and do not maintain health rules despite the government imposing strict rules to ward off the rising coronavirus new variant.

People, particularly youths were found thronging the fair amid much enthusiasm and showing good responses in buying different products, including cookeries, cosmetics, clothes, jewellery and so on despite the corona pandemic.


We have to follow the health 

protocols even after taking 

the vaccine against Covid-19


Every individual has the responsibility to ensure his or her own protection alongside their family members. We urge all to maintain strictly the protocols in the trade fair developed to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

People have again become careless about covid and are not maintaining health guidelines. It is noticeable that the number of people wearing masks is decreasing. This cannot continue and we must follow health guidelines strictly. People have also been requested to follow proper health rules, including wearing masks while they are in the trade fair. We have to follow the health protocols even after taking the vaccine against Covid-19.

We think that people’s attitude towards the coronavirus would place us in a most unfortunate situation in the coming days if we continue to violate the health rules. However, it is also the responsibility of all organisations inside the fair and individuals to exercise these precautions on their own and raise awareness about them wherever possible. Only then we can control the alarming rise of the new covid cases.
