So as per official data, the number of total infected people has reached 2, 92,625 which is higher than the other South Asian country Pakistan. To date, the number of total infected people in Pakistan is 2,92,174. Nearly four thousand people have already died in Bangladesh.

Many experts fear that we will never know the actual pandemic situation because of the low test rate. 91 government and private laboratories across the country have carried out more than 14 lac tests so far which is among the lowest rate in the world.

Corona detection was officially declared on 8th March and first death was recorded on 18th March. Experts are pushing for continued practicing of social distancing, wearing face masks, and sanitizing hands frequently.
