Covid: 9 die in Natore in 24 hours

The Covid-19 situation is deteriorating in Natore with each passing day. As many as nine people have succumbed to the virus in the past 24 hours, officials said on Tuesday morning.

Besides, the district has logged 93 fresh Covid cases since Monday morning. Some 293 samples were tested during this period, the officials said.

The positivity rate in Natore now stands at 32%, reports our correspondent.

But when deaths are not enough to instill fear in people, it's natural that fines or arrests won’t deter people from venturing out amid strict lockdown restrictions.

In Natore, people were seen roaming around without masks on Tuesday morning, while many shops remained reopen in clear violation of the lockdown restrictions.
