The government has suspended a special open market sale (OMS) of rice at Tk 10 per kg during the coronavirus shutdown amid concerns over the risk of contagion due to the huge crowds it draws.

Food Secretary Musammat Nazmanara Khanum confirmed the development on 13th april (Monday), reports

“Buying the Tk 10 rice doesn’t require any special cards so it attracted large crowds. This increases the risk of contagion so the programme has been suspended for the time being.”
