All Bangladesh government employees have been ordered to return to their offices, ending a window for 75 per cent of staffers to work from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it was reported.

The Cabinet Division directed the ministries and offices to restore the usual working hours to 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam told bdnews24.

Many ministries have verbally informed their officials and employees about the matter. Some have already started working at full capacity, while others are preparing to bring all its employees back to work.

Nevertheless, the attendance restriction will still apply to the elderly and sick employees along with expectant mothers.

As of Saturday, Bangladesh has reported a total of 252,502 coronavirus cases, with 3,333 deaths.
