The national technical advisory committee on tackling COVID-19 issued the warning in a statement after a meeting on Sunday, stressing the need for steps to ensure the health rules.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also asked all to be prepared to tackle a possible rise in coronavirus infections in the upcoming winter, when she said the situation “may worsen slightly”.
Globally, around 30.8 million people have been infected by the novel coronavirus and over 957,000 have died from the COVID-19 disease caused by the virus.
